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.

We ship two ways. One is "Local Delivery". That means one, or more, of our crew members personally delivers your order in a Bay Gardens truck or van to your home. This option is only available in certain zip codes throughout NY, NJ & CT.
The other method is "Common Carrier Shipping". Only certain plants can be sent this way. Usually ones that are under 4 feet tall. When we ship this way, one of our crew members boxes up your order and then sends it to your home via UPS or FedEx.

Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.
Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
