Eastern hemlock speaking series

Many of the oldest, most ecologically intact forests in Ontario are dominated by hemlock… and often they are much closer to home than you’d imagine. Starting in May 2017 Michael Henry, author of Ontario’s Old-Growth Forests, will give presentations¬†about the history, ecology, and future of eastern hemlock forests.

If you’re interested in attending a talk contact info@ancientforest.org, sign up for our newsletter, or check back here. Presentations will explore:

  • The unusual ecology and history of eastern hemlock forests
  • How old patches survived and where they are
  • How to recognize old forest, and old trees
  • The future of hemlock forests: they need our help
  • The larger problem of invasive forest pests and what we need to do
