Eastern Hemlock

(Tsuga canadensis)


Interesting Information About Plant:

The Eastern Hemlock is a woody tree that can live for over 800 years. The bark contains tannins that were once used to process leather. The tree now is used at times for ornamental reasons and the wood is processed into pulp for the paper industry. In forests across North America, where the trees are located, wildlife uses it for protection, especially white-tailed deer that use it for bedding in the winter. The only pest that really affects the Eastern Hemlock is the woolly adelgid. The trees are also susceptible to root rot if located in an area where the ground can become very wet.
