Field Notes
We crossed a bridge and passed a lot of poison ivy to get here. Some of us were happy because we think we found sap instead of adelgid. Some of us were happy to prove our scientific skills by possibly finding the adelgid, but unhappy at the same time because its bad for the environment. A problem we ran into is that mosquitoes were eating us alive. We see trees, hear birds, and smell the outdoors.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
We know that this is a hemlock tree by the two white racing stripes on the underside of the needles.

This picture shows the length of the needles compared to a ruler and we can see that the needles are 1-2 cm.

As the species card says, "older bark is brownish, scaly and cracked" and in the photo you can see that this tree matches that description.
