    Connecticut has mature forests dominated by hardwoods. Most trees are healthy with full crowns (low transparency and high density), little dieback and little damage. The exception is eastern hemlock, which was in poor condition, with thin crowns, more dieback and more damage, especially broken tops. These conditions are likely the result of attack by the hemlock woolly adelgid and other pests.
