TREE KILLING INSECT FOUND IN NEW BUFFALO, MI

An invasive Asian insect that attacks Hemlock trees has been found in southwest Michigan. The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid has been a problem on Hemlock trees for several years in the eastern United States. The aphid-like insect damages tree by sucking sap from the needles of Hemlock trees.

Michigan authorities found Hemlock Woolly Adelgid insects on 41 Hemlock trees at one site near New Buffalo and eight Hemlock trees at a second site. Both sites were located in Berrien County. The infested trees will be cut down and nearby Hemlock trees will be treated with an insecticide to control any Adelgids that may have been missed.

Over the past several years Hemlock Woolly Adelgid has been found in Emmet, Macomb, and Ottawa counties in Michigan. In each instance Michigan authorities have been able to stop the Hemlock Woolly Adelgids from spreading by cutting down all the infested Hemlock trees. Hemlock trees are used in landscaping and there are an estimated 100 million Hemlock trees in forested areas throughout Michigan.
