Do you mean the Hemlock tree (Tsuga ssp.), native to Japan and North America, or the Hemlock herb (Conium maculatum), native to Europe and North Africa? It is the latter that is known as the Bane of Socrates. But because of the name, there have been much confusion...
The herb conium maculatum specifically but through association the tree has become associated by name. That's one I used to go over and over in explaining but got tired of arguing about. So many people try to sell the smaller Hemlock pine cones as being sacred to her, used to see them on etsy and eBay all the time. Yet the Hemlock tree in it's own right is also toxic to a degree.
But in her actual lore I can't think of any named tree's.
