Drew Rayner works for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and is the West Michigan HWA Coordinator, specifically working on hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). If you have not heard of HWA, it is a forest pest that is attacking our hemlock trees here in Michigan and if left unaddressed, will lead to tree mortality. Port Sheldon Township is located near current HWA infestations and Drew is a resource to the township and its residents. His position allows him to speak at meetings and outreach events, conduct trainings on how to properly treat trees for this pest, and be a resource to confirm the presence/absence of this species and provide advice. He is willing to speak with anyone on this issue and provide more information. Please feel free to email him at RaynerD1@michigan.gov or call him at 517-231-8763.
