An Eastern Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) cone
These beautiful trees are being attacked by a type of fuzzy white aphid, called a wooly hemlock adelgid. Colditz Cove State Natural Area, where I took this photo, has huge, ancient hemlocks. I hope the adelgids won't attack them. The Smoky Mountains have been attacked and many trees have died.
