Government of Canada kicks in $1.4M for Hemlocks

Hemlock Trail - Kejimkujik Park

An early Christmas present today for anyone involved with Eastern Hemlocks and the invasive Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA).

The Federal Government announced a $1.4M program for Keji Staff to continue their work on HWA.

This is very encouraging ... HWA is very much a Western Nova Scotia issue at this point.  Finding solutions and best practices here will help others in Nova Scotia, Atlantic Canada and beyond deal with it as it spreads.

A step in the right direction.
