Balsam Wooly Adelgid

The picture above was taken near Clingman's Dome in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina. The dead trees are the result of an invasion of a non-native insect, the Balsam Wooly Adelgid.

Also within the Smoky Mountains, hemlocks are now at risk from the non-native hemlock wooly adelgid.
