Ernest Henry Wilson is one of the most prolific, renowned, and farthest traveled plant explorers associated with The Arnold Arboretum. It is not an overstatement to credit Wilson with bringing Eastern Asian botany, history, and culture to widespread interest in western society, nor to exaggerate the introduction of thousands of Asian plant species to western gardens.

Hemlock Hill is located at the southeast end of the Arnold Arboretum, between Bussey and Peters Hills and closest to the South Street Gate.
