Canadian Hemlock, or Tsuga canadensis, is an excellent choice when you need a dense, evergreen, privacy tree in a shady situation. Extremely deer-resistant, Hemlock can also tolerate sunny situations. Hemlocks are native to the Northeast and are very cold hardy. When left unsheared in the wild, these plants can reach heights of 30-40 ft. They respond very well to shearing and create a nice dense tree or hedge. Their branches droop and create a very graceful appearance with their scaly needles. Hemlocks do not like windy situations and must be protected from dry, windy sites. The Canadian Hemlock is a great choice if you are looking for a deer-resistant, shade-tolerant evergreen.
