A new article by visiting researcher Nicky Lustenhouwer and HF researchers Aaron Ellison and Liza Nicoll reports impacts of forest decline, harvest, and regeneration in eastern hemlock stands affected by the invasive hemlock woolly adelgid.

Observed changes in soil and air temperature, as well as soil moisture levels -- all important ecosystem factors -- are the result of five years of microclimate research in the long-term Hemlock Removal Experiment.
