You have done a great job collecting evidence to support your claims. It is dismaying to see evidence of HWA. I saw it last year at a nearby hiking spot here in Maine http://vitalsignsme.org/species-adelges-tsugae-was-found-sniffly-salaman...

I wonder how infestations are changing over time. I wonder if the infestation at your site is new or if it has changed over time.

Be careful not to spread HWA. I always try to be careful on my hikes at Robinson Woods because we have hemlocks in our yard, and I don't want to bring any HWA home with me.

Thanks for sharing!
