Oddity in the woods (Tsuga heterophylla)


Oddity in the woods (Tsuga heterophylla)

I look at this western hemlock growing out of the old tree stump from our small orchard by the greenhouse. It is a shade-tolerant tree growing here under canopy of Douglas Firs. We lost 3 nice specimens in few years. Do not know why. It is my favourite Pacific West region conifer.

Nature gives as well as taking away. Perhaps it's a good omen for your recent losses.

I had one in front of my house, but a hurricane knocked it over thankfully not onto my roof. lol. They are nice trees.
