Coon Branch Trail will take you trough some dense forests of old hardwoods and rhododendron, but in this segment you find out about treating Eastern Hemlock trees for the wooly adelgid aphid. Hemlock wooly adelgids use piercing-sucking mouth parts and feed only on hemlock tree sap. Immature nymphs and adults damage trees by sucking sap from the twigs and at the base of the needles. In addition to treating trees, arborists will climb and measure some of the largest specimens in the Bad Creek area around Coon Branch.
