Adelgid researchers to meet in Haywood

Written by 

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.

I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
