Fast Forward - Hemlock Hospice Installation by David Buckley Borden

Harvard Forest and the Hemlock Hospice Art Installation was recently highlighted by Renée Loth in the Boston Globe.  The elegy to the Hemlock is described by Loth in this excerpt: 

"Part sculpture, part pedagogy, part citizen science, the project speaks largely in artistic metaphor. But the popular Black Gum trail really is off-limits to the public, because its towering eastern hemlock trees have been infected by the invasive woolly adelgid . These tiny beetles suck all the nutrients out of the hemlock’s needles and leave ghost trees, bare and vulnerable to toppling over in the wind. Another stop along the hospice trail offers visitors a row of brightly decorated hard hats."
