I have often wondered why you hardly see any bonsai made from Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) or Tsuga caroliniana? I have seen plenty made with its western cousins, but very few with the eastern varieties. Are they not suitable for bonsai? Do they have flaws like sudden branch die-back or other traits that makes them unsuitable material to work with? What are your experiences with this species? Have you worked with it before? I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts and experiences (both good and bad) with the Eastern Hemlock.
