Project Overview

The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative collaborated with the New York Invasive Species Research Institute to identify and rank riparian corridors at potential risk of future hemlock losses due to hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) in New York State (projected 2013-2027; USFS 2012). We combined preexisting spatial data projecting losses of hemlock due to HWA developed by the USDA Forest Service Forest Health Protection program (USFS 2012) with stream corridor and catchment data to quantify potential losses at 50', 100' and 200' buffers of stream reaches and summarized the results to HUC12 sub-catchments.


Quantify the risks to stream corridors of hemlock loss due to hemlock woolly adelgid in New York and make this information easily accessible to the research and monitoring community.
