Thank you for this report and these pictures. Unfortunately, the pictures weren't sharp enough to determine if the hemlock pictured is or isn't infested with hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). They very well could be since HWA was found in Epping in 2014. Keep looking and feel free to resubmit pictures, if you wish.
