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 unique ecology of eastern hemlock
  • The history of hemlock forests, and how old patches survived
  • How to recognize old forest, and old trees
  • Where you can go to see old-growth hemlock
  • The future of hemlock forests: we need your help
  • Invasive forest pests, and what it means to save a tree species
