Field Notes
When we went outside, it was warm and sunny. We were looking for Eastern Hemlock trees. I believe I found one. The needles/leaves have a white racing stripe on the back and the front is dark green. They bear little brown cones. The leaves are in alternate form. The tips of the branches are white-ish green. These are the characteristics of Western Hemlock trees.

nice job identifying Hemlock. Was there Wooly Adelgid on it? We were looking for invasive species, weren't we? You pick really good characteristics to point out for Hemlock. Nice work.

Good job. I had the same results. I believe you found it as well as I:) love you rose.
