Tiny pests could pose a huge threat to the Adirondack Park.
Hemlock and Ash trees across the North Country and the Adirondack Park will soon be threatened by two forest pests, the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid and the Emerald Ash Borer. This week we preview a documentary on the pests and talk with a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Research Scientist about the impact these invasive species could have on forests across Northern New York. Jerry Carlson also talks about pesticides and natural predators that may help slow the spread of the pests. Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUaoZTBEVBE
