Treatments were underway in 2020 for the known infested trees and those in surrounding areas. This was handled by West Michigan CISMA thanks to grants provided by the US Forest Service.

Mason-Lake CD staff will continue survey efforts in winter ’20 – ’21 as was done last year on private property, local campgrounds, township parks, etc. to determine if HWA has spread to other areas of the county.  If located, this will trigger a regional response to containing the infestation and working with the landowner to provide treatment on infested trees. We do not want this insect to continue spreading north!
