Caring For Silvermont Hemlocks


Over the years many people have been involved in caring for the hemlocks at Silvermont. Concerned citizens, businesses and professionals have contributed time, talent and money in caring for these special trees.

In 2012, as part of the effort to prepare for the Silvermont Centennial in 2017, a group of volunteers surveyed all 258 hemlocks at Silvermont from saplings to very large trees. Each tree was recorded, measured and evaluated. The goal was to create a management strategy to ensure the continuing health of the hemlocks on this 8.5 acre park in the middle of Brevard.
