Look at our website on the hemlock woolly adelgid, a sucking insect,  to see if this is what you are referring to. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/hemlock-woolly-adelgid-trees

If not, send us digital photos so we can see what you may be dealing with.  Send photos of the whole tree, around the base, and affected branches/foliage.
