#1)  Healthy older Hemlock, Cumberland County

Postby Barry Caselli » Thu Feb 05, 2015 10:25 am

A few weeks ago I and some friends were looking for a lost family burial ground on the property of an 18th Century Farmstead that is now a State Park. This is in Cumberland County, near the Salem County line.
We had been given a tip of where to look. The first thing I noticed were two trees that seemed out of place.
The two trees turned out to be Norway Spruce and Eastern Hemlock. The gravesite was enclosed in a stone wall in 1908. In my opinion the two trees were planted in 1908 as well. They are both strong and healthy, and there's no sign whatsoever of HWA on the Hemlock.
