Field Notes
The reason that we were happy was that it was nicely cold out and that the hemlock lasts through the winter. We saw a lot of snow and could hear the rain from all around. But we didn't find it in the area that we were looking in. The reason that we think that we didn't find it was that none of the characteristics of the trees in the area matched that of the information on the identification sheet.
Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
We think that we didn't find it because these are pine needles, and the hemlock needles are short and flat and the pine needles are long and round.

We also know that the bark of the hemlock is more cracked and peely. And also even though they look very similar, the hemlock's bark has a more reddish tinge to it.

We also know that the hemlock's branches aren't as flexible as the pine's branches. And there are also some more needles on each branch.

Comments

even though you did not find it i have many guesses on what it is but i am almost certain that it is a white pine. but i will check up on that.

Okay thanks.

Ok thanks

i think that you found the eastern hemlock and your pictures are great. each pictures are in focus.

I think that we didn't find it because I studdied a simmilar species of hemlock, and found out that the needles on the pine and hemlock differ in great amounts.
