Description

Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) is a large, dense, pyramidal evergreen tree that can grow between 40 and 70 feet tall. The needle-like leaves are an attractive deep green color with light green/silvery undersides, and the cones are small and delicate. It prefers part-shade to full-shade, average/medium soil moisture, and needs protection from harsh afternoon sun and drying winds. Eastern Hemlock is commonly used as a stately specimen tree, as a screen in a group planting, or shaped into a hedge. It provides cover, habitat, and food for birds and small mammals. Eastern Hemlock is a host plant for the Columbia Silkmoth, pictured above.

Please Note: This tree is not related to the poisonous herbaceous hemlock plants.
