About Western Hemlock

Western Hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) is the largest of all Hemlocks and the State Tree of Washington. It is native to the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Canada, and usually occurs within 75 miles of the Pacific Coast, in temperate rain forests below 6,000 feet; however, there is an outlying inland population in the Rocky Mountains (British Columbia, Idaho, and Montana).

Sometimes called "the Queen of Conifers" and described as "a slender tower of lush, elegant beauty," the Western Hemlock has purple-brown bark; glossy, deep green leaves; and a gracefully-arched leading shoot which lends the tree a singular loveliness. Western Hemlock foliage is inviting, soft to the touch, and fern-like.

This impressive tree can grow more than 250 feet tall (with trunks up to 4 feet across) and can live for more than 1,200 years. Western Hemlocks love the sun, but are very shade-tolerant also and prefer wetter sites.

About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown without poison or pesticides at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


About Jonsteen's 100% Guarantee

All of our trees are guaranteed to arrive healthy and in good condition. If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling (typically under $5). You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.

Seedling Size Chart: Small

Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
