Field Notes
I am happy because see green trees. I hear traffic nearby. I see trails through the woods. There is low foliage around grassy edges. There is a mix of evergreen and deciduous trees. We are trying to determine whether the community is at risk of infestation by forest pests.
Supporting Evidence

There are white racing stripes on the underside of the needles, which are typical of hemlock needles.

Needles are short and flat, not long and skinny like pine needles.

The bark is rough with deep cracks and or wrinkles, not flakey or smooth like other types of evergreen trees.
