Tsuga canadensisNOT FOUND by EasternHemlockB

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.
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.
