Native to Asia and western North America, the hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) was first reported in eastern Virginia in the early 1950s. It feeds on both eastern hemlock and Carolina hemlock in Virginia. Since then, it has spread to most of the Appalachian region of the eastern United States and spans as far north as parts of Canada
