Mountain hemlock - 201210LJW

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

_JAW8682 The ridge on the south side of Enchanted Valley has extensive forests of mountain hemlock. The world's largest mountain hemlock is found here, but I could not find a sign identifying it. Still, there are so many large mountain hemlocks that many of them are of world class size.

You know you are in the highlands on the Olympic Peninsula when you see these trees.

They survive Michigan winters and are coveted for landscaping. Keep looking for the champion Tsuga mertensiana! LIKE
