Evergreen That Grows in Hot and Cold
Why Canadian Hemlocks?
With the Canadian Hemlock, you get stunning evergreen growth that’s not limited to hot or cold climates. These cold hardy trees will thrive in cold regions where other varieties typically can't grow, and also manages the heat with ease in warmer climates.
Even better? They grow in poor soil conditions and adapt to the shade, actually preferring a shady spot when temperatures rise in the summer. So, the Canadian Hemlock is the evergreen that flourishes in almost any condition.
And Canadian Hemlocks are versatile. When planted in close proximity, these Hemlocks produce a dense hedge that will provide plenty of privacy. They grow together, forming a wall that also shields you from noise and high winds. The wispy foliage is surprisingly sturdy and can withstand high gusts of wind with no problem. No matter where you plant, you get a well-established, ample tree that increases property value and curb appeal.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a site that offers some shade. The tree requires daily direct sun, but prefers partial shade, especially in areas that have hot summer temperatures.
Then, select a site with moist or well-drained soil for the Canadian Hemlock. Dig the hole twice the size as the root ball and just a little shallower. Use your fingers to separate the roots of your Canadian Hemlock and gently position downward in the hole. Position to where the trunk begins and the roots end, about an inch above the soil level. Back fill the hole, apply water to settle the soil and remove the air pockets.
Protect the roots in winter against the chill by applying a thick layer of pine needles, bark or wood. Keep the mulch about 2 inches from the trunk.
2. Watering: Water Canadian Hemlocks well so the soil can stay moist at all times. Generally, we recommend watering once or twice weekly for best results. If you're not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down - if the soil is dry, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: In spring, the tree can be fertilized with an evergreen tree plant food.
4. Pruning: Pruning is only required if you wish to keep the tree at a certain shape or size. It is not necessary for the health of the tree. Be sure to sterilize your cutting tool with some rubbing alcohol if you're planning to prune/shape the tree.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Tree's came fast. They look good. It will be great if they really grow as fast as it says.
So far so good. It’s been just a few weeks so next year will be more telling. If it survives the winter the kudos.
The tree was small but healthy. I planted it right away and it looks like it will be fine.
We bought 12 Canadian Hemlock trees and planted them in the fall. There was no information about them being so attractive to rabbits, so we didn’t think any cage or other protection was necessary. Here in southern NC, winters are very mild and there is plenty of greenery and flowers for the critters. My yard is fenced and being in the middle of a development, on a lake peninsula, deer are not in my yard (we installed cameras six years ago when we moved here). So we have never had issues with our landscaping being damaged by animals. The trees were healthy and checked on daily when cleaning the pine needles out of the pool. Then they were eaten down to the dirt. All twelve of them gone. The only furry critters we saw were a few squirrels and one rabbit. I wish there was some mention about them being so vulnerable. Due to physical challenges, it took a lot of effort to plant them plus the cost.
