Description: Eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis (L.) Carr.) is the second most abundant conifer species in the northeastern United States. It occurs both in almost pure stands and in stands where it is mixed with hardwoods and white pine (Pinus strobus L.). Recently, hemlock in the middle-Atlantic and southern New England states has become infested with the hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae Annand). This insect pest can result in high levels of mortality, opening up the forest canopy and illuminating the forest floor to full sunlight. The effects of the mortality of overstory hemlock on forest wildlife in hemlock-dominated stands is essentially unknown.
