Eastern hemlock. a member of the pine family, generally is known simply as hemlock. The names hemlock spruce and spruce pine are sometimes used, particularly in the southern Appalachians, and Canadian hemlock is used in the north.

The natural range of eastern hemlock extends from Nova Scotia westward through New Brunswick, Maine, extreme southern Quebec, lower Ontario, central and northern Michigan, Wisconsin, and parts of eastern Minnesota.

It extends southwest from New England through the Middle Atlantic States and eastern Ohio and along the Appalachian Mountains to northern Georgia and Alabama. Eastern hemlock also grows in scattered islands in southern Indiana.

Eastern hemlock grows best in a cool humid climate that has an adequate moisture in all seasons. However, at the extremities of its range, it is found in drier localities. Like eastern white pine, eastern hemlock grows best in the southern Appalachian Mountains where 150- year-old trees may reach a diameter at breast height of 30 inches and heights of 115 feet.

Eastern hemlock wood is light brown to buff in color, glues easily and holds paint moderately well.

Eastern hemlock is used primarily for lumber and paper pulp. About three-fourths of the hemlock lumber produced is used for light framing, sheathing, roofing, and subflooring. The remainder of the lumber is used for boxes, crates, and pallets; railroad car construction and repair; general millwork, and sign construction.

A small amount is used for specialty items like toys, sporting goods and caskets.
