Adelgid researchers to meet in Haywood

The Alliance for Saving Threatened Forests is hosting a one-day symposium, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., about host resistance research to the hemlock and balsam woolly adelgids.

The conference will take place Oct. 26 at the Haywood County Cooperative Extension Center, across from the Mountain Research Station in Waynesville.

There are several objectives, including bringing together scientists who are researching adelgid resistance to explain their work in layman’s terms.

The symposium is sponsored by the Friends of the Smokies, the N.C. Nursery and Landscape Association, and the N.C. Christmas Tree Association. A barbecue lunch will be provided.
