Tsuga canadensis (eastern hemlock) is a coniferous tree native to eastern North America. It is the main attraction at Hemlock Hill, located at the southeast end of the Arnold Arboretum, between Bussey and Peters Hills and closest to the South Street Gate. Over its history, it has been impacted by human, insect, and environmental events.

Eastern hemlock is our Tree of the Month for February 2020.
