Canadian Hemlock - Winter Splendor!


If you are looking for an evergreen tree variety to plant in your yard that will provide some privacy and class to your property then this is it!!  The Canadian Hemlock tree has short needles similar to a pine tree but the needles are more flat and less "picky".


The Canadian Hemlock is beautiful in any and all seasons!  Please enjoy the following pictures!  (all photos were taken by Angie Ouellette-Tower)

If you are a crafter you will also love the tiny pine cones that this glorious tree provides (see picture below).

When these trees get a little older (30 years or more) - you will be able to use the shade and shelter that they provide for a campfire pit, storing your firewood or  simply relaxing (see pictures below - keep in mind that it looks very different in the summer).

Look at the height of this tree - being snow covered makes them appear even more glorious.
