It gets clusters of tiny pine cones. Growing here in northern GA. Is structured similar to a Norfolk Island Pine.

    I have 2 Eastern Hemlock’s and they’re by far my favorite. Just remember they get really tall and very wide at the bottom so they need lots of room!

    Now I’m leaning towards an Eastern Hemlock

    My tree’s over all growth pattern seems looser and the needles seem longer than the cryptomeria pictured on the website you sent. Now I’m leaning towards an Eastern Hemlock. I dearly love my “conifer” no matter it’s name. Or have I said that already?

    It certainly could be. The conifers are, for me, the hardest to ID. The hemlock also has the baby pine cones and if you look on this page, there’s a close up of the needles on the Yoshino Cryptomeria. Compare those to yours and maybe it’s a match!

    Someone on a Facebook plant group told me its a Yoshino Cryptomeria or Japanese cedar. I believe they are right. Yoshino Cryptomeria Had the same tiny clusters of pine cones. This is the most beautiful pine I’ve ever owned.

    Looks very much like the Eastern Hemlock to me.
