This day-long workshop will give participants hands-on experience assessing and chemically treating hemlocks for HWA.

We will cover the details of chemical treatment, including:
- How to identify hemlock trees and assess their health to determine appropriate treatment
- How to select, mix, and safely apply products
- Ways to reduce off-target risks to the environment
- When to seek help from a tree care professional
Participants will be provided with a series of short videos with additional background information.
