Wikipedia: History and Chemical Composition.—The Hemlock spruce is a well-known indigenous tree, abounding in the forests of the Northern States and Canada. The tree is found in the same latitudes and elevations as the A. balsamea. It flowers in May. The juice or oleoresin, known as Canada pitch, or incorrectly as Gum hemlock (for a description of which see Pix Canadensis), oozes from the tree, without any incisions being made, and concretes upon its external surface; the bark is removed from the tree, cut into large fragments, and boiled in water. As the resin ascends to float upon the water, it is removed by skimming and thrown into cold water. It is then placed in a coarse linen bag, and boiled a second time, to remove its impurities—(Jour. Phil. Col. Pharm., Vol. II, p. 20).
