Save Your Hemlocks
Saving our hemlocks is critical to the aesthetics of our lake and mountain environment by providing the habitat that supports wildlife, many species of plants, our water quality, the economic value of our own property and the north Georgia community which is dependent on tourism spending to create jobs. Think about your property, your neighbor’s property, our Lake Rabunsurroundings and shoreline, the northeast Georgia mountains andimagine them with no Hemlocks. What a tragedy! We do not want to become a North Carolina or Virginia where the Hemlocks have been virtually destroyed because people did not recognize the problem soon enough and then delayed taking action.
Approximately 75% of Georgia’s Hemlocks are located on private property. It is critical that we take action now on our respective properties to preserve the Hemlocks. Treating the Hemlocks can be done very easily and cost effectively relative to losing property value estimated at 7% to 10% due to the loss of Hemlocks or the cost of removing dead trees. See our LRA web site and resources available at LRA Hemlock Program to provide guidance and alternatives to save your Hemlocks.
