Hope for Hemlocks of KY

Hope for Hemlocks is a project of Kentucky Heartwood to save the Eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis), a tree of enormous ecological importance and breathtaking beauty. Hemlocks in the east, including Kentucky, are being decimated by an invasive insect, the hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae). Thousands of acres of hemlock forests on public and private land have already been destroyed, but this isn’t the end of the story.

Join us as we use all the available tools to stop this ecological catastrophe. We need volunteers and donors and partners. We especially need your voice.

On our website, www.hopeforhemlocksky.org, you’ll find the history and science of hemlocks and adelgids, alongside the resources and information needed to preserve hemlocks for generations to come.
