Healthy Forests Initiative includes pest-control funds

The Healthy Forests Initiative signed into law in Dec. 2003, will include funding for large-scale research of control options for several tree pests. This June, research started on a 1,500-acre project to study the control of southern pine beetle and red oak borer. Additional projects will study control of hemlock woolly adelgid and gypsy moth. Through the HFI, the U.S. Forest Service is also developing an early-warning system that would alert the public to forest threats.

The Federal Highway Administration has added the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program to its list of "exemplary ecosystem" initiatives, bringing the total number of initiatives to 15.

The cooperative multi-agency, public-private Adirondack Park Invasive Plants Program (APIPP) has just been notified that it won this national recognition!  Perfect that the NYS Invasive Species Task Force is visiting the Adirondacks and touring sites showcasing the APIPP's work later in July.  Great work Kyle Williams, Dan Spada, Hilary Oles, DEC, IPC and all the others that make this program a success.
