Hemlock Trees in Landscaping and Gardens

by Nancy Penrose

Hemlock is the common name of the Tsuga, a member of the pine family and conifer genus. When the tree’s leaves are crushed, they smell like the poison hemlock plant (the plant that killed Socrates). However, unlike the plant, the tree is not poisonous.

Hemlocks thrive where there is moisture and cool temperatures, including areas with snow. They are considered medium-size trees, and can grow to almost 200 ft. in height. The bark of the tree, which has a scaly appearance with deep furrows, ranges in color from a dark, charcoal grey to reddish brown.

The hemlock’s wood is made into pulp, and its bark is used for tanning leather. Tea can be made from the tree’s needles. Hemlocks are also used in landscaping and gardens. Continue reading

Soil
