Hi rachel.bartlett,

Thank you for this report and these pictures. I consulted with our forest health specialist at the N. H. Division of Forests and Lands and we agree that image 2 is that of a native circular scale. To see other native scales pictured: https://extension.unh.edu/resources/files/Resource002111_Rep3116.pdf We also agree that image 3 shows spider webbing. We aren't quite sure what image 1 pictures. We are confident you don't have hemlock woolly adelgid or elongate hemlock scale.
