    Would it be more effective to assist the hemlocks in migrating to higher elevations and more northern latitudes by planting hemlock seedlings grown from the most natural, best genetics, and by planting hemlock on the south side of reforestation collectives and clusters to enable sunlight- induced growth to compensate for ANY unpredictable, invasive, insect stresses ? Adelgid Hemlocks with more sun exposure seem to have more foliage to ground level than shaded hemlocks with extreme needle loss except for the upper crown.

    YOU COULD WASTE $1 MILLION ON TOXIC PESTICIDES ON A FUTILE EFFORT TO SAVE OLD HEMLOCKS
    OR

    YOU COULD PLANT 1 MILLION REFORESTATION SEEDLINGS WHERE ADELGID CANT SURVIVE on burnt or logged areas

    I hope the release of these predatory beetles doesnt end up in 10 years becoming a new invasive with the destruction of a lot of beneficial insects. We need to stop importing living plants and products from over seas and the constant new invsive species.
