Hemlock - Canadian

Tsuga canadensis

Canadian Hemlocks are very versatile, long-lived conifers; they can live to be several hundred years old. The trees are fragrant and have small needles which are dark green on top and light green underneath. This evergreen can be pruned to any shape or height to create a thick privacy screen or living wall by planting 2 feet apart. When left alone, the tree reaches for the sky, a towering specimen reaching up to 70 feet in height. Canadian Hemlocks are not terribly drought or wind resistant so please take note of the location where you intend to plant them. Grow best in well-drained locations similar to what the firs prefer. This is one of the most shade tolerant of all conifers.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!
