Thursday Tree Love: Hemlock?


My husband David identified this tree as a hemlock. We pass by it often on our walks in the neighborhood, and it stands out as different from the live oaks, pines, dogwoods, magnolias, and other trees common to the area.

In my search, I have not found a photo of a hemlock with such spikey looking leaves. What I have learned is that there are many different kinds of hemlock trees and plants. Some are poisonous and some are not, but it’s always good to be careful.

Thursday Tree Love is hosted by Parul Thakur on the second and fourth Thursday of every month. For more tree love visit: #ThursdayTreeLove – 103 – happiness and food

  1. I always thought hemlock trees were particularly beautiful. They were also very expensive, the only time I looked into getting one.
    The photos are wonderful. Hugs on the wing!

    • Glad you liked the photos! I’ve sort of taken this tree for granted on our walks, but now, I’m studying it more carefully, appreciating its uniqueness, and the berries/cones. Hugs on the wing!

  2. The tree in the photos is not the same as the hemlocks I know from Shenandoah National Park, which have much shorter needles and very tiny cones.The tiny cones always fascinated me. It is interesting to know there are many varieties of hemlock, some poisonous. I won’t be ingesting any of them! Thank you for this informative post, JoAnna! 🙂

  3. The tree looks beautiful!

  4. Another beautiful tree. Love the leaves 🙂

  5. Beautiful tree! Yet another new species for me! Thanks JoAnna. This tree has an interesting twin trunk!

  6. Thank you for sharing!.. like everything else, each tree is unique, different and has a place and here on the path every tree is a tree of love… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May your troubles be less
    Your blessings be more
    And nothing but happiness
    Come through your door
    (Irish Saying)

  7. Hemlocks generally aren’t found in my part of New York State, I’ve read, but are common in some other areas. They are a beautiful tree, are they not.

  8. Ah, yeah, that’s a beauty 🙂

  9. I think I have a different type of hemlock tree in my blog archives. It had tiny, tiny cones.

  10. I don’t think I have seen a Hemlock but that’s what I love the most about ThursdayTreeLove. I get to see so many trees that I may not be able to see in this lifetime. Thanks JoAnna for joining. I hope to see you tomorrow.

    • That’s what I love about Thursday Tree Love, too, Parul, along with honoring trees. There are a variety of different kinds of hemlocks. Hope to see you tomorrow!
