AHHHH! This explains alot! I've been seeing these near our area, and in the adjoining counties, in the mountains of VA. I've heard all kinds of stories on what these purple triangular contraptions were hanging from trees. Now I know. No Ash on our 38 acres, though. We do have a bug killing lots of the Hemlock population, unfortunately.

Chief - I had the same thing happen to my place over the mountains in Madison County.  Lost all my medium and up sized Hemlocks.  Some real nice ones were the first to go. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

Same here with the hemlock here too. I have 4-8 that are dead and just 100 feet from there are some nice looking hemlock.

This year seemed to be better on the trees. Some died, or are showing signs of distress, but not nearly the way I experienced in 2011.
