Deer Resistance
Canadian hemlock, also known as eastern hemlock or Tsuga canadensis, occasionally sustains deer damage. The University of Connecticut notes that deer like to browse on foliage or rub the bark with their antlers. Rutgers University and Iowa State University include the Canadian hemlock on their lists of plants that are occasionally severely damaged by deer.
Features
The Canadian hemlock, an evergreen, can grow up to 70 feet tall. Trees grow in a conical shape and have flat, dark green needles. Trees produce prolific amounts of small, light brown cones.
Habitat
The trees are native to eastern North America. In the wild, Canadian hemlocks tend to grow on eastern or northern slopes in cool areas. Plant Canadian hemlocks in full sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soils away from wind-susceptible areas.
