This section of the website focuses on invasive species, both plants ad animals that are encountered in our field work or are severely affecting those areas we are visiting.  The Hemlock Search Project for example is intimately linked with the invasive insect the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid that is devastating native hemlocks across most of its southern range.  However this section is not meant as a clearinghouse of information on invasive species.  I would recommend for further reference to first check out the following link

  • Invasive and Exotic Species to North America any species, including its seeds, eggs, spores, or other biological material capable of propagating that species, that is not native to that ecosystem; and whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.


Invasive Species

On March 14, 2010 the Eastern Native Tree Society and Western Native Tree Society switched from discussion lists on Google Groups to a new discussion list in a Bulletin Board format at:  Posts made since the inception of the BBS on march 14, 2010 will be sorted and archived on the BBS. Click on the link above to go to the equivalent section on the new BBS. This website will continue to serve as a front end for the ENTS and WNTS groups. It will continue to serve as a repository of older posts, and will serve as the host site for special projects and features that are not well suited for a BBS format. Please visit the BBs for the latest information and trip reports.
