A Danger for State Forrest
Friday, April 12, 2013
Harrisburg- An historic
state forest in our area is facing a serious threat from invasive insects and
scientists say climate change is a contributing factor. State forestry
officials say they're concerned that the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (a-del-gid) has
recently been discovered in cook forest state park in northwestern Pennsylvania.
Some of the hemlocks there are over 140 feet tall, and they create a cool,
shaded environment for numerous creatures.
