See, Tamarack Really Does Turn Golden in Fall

I wasn’t making it up. It’s a deciduous conifer. (This was taken looking across an old bog – the trees you can see that are still dark green are pine and spruce. These tamarack aren’t at their peak color yet, still more yellow-green than gold, but you get the idea.)

  1. The farther north you go the more tamaracks their are until you reach the tundra. These trees are adapted to survive cold climates. Called Hackamatacks in Maine and NH, this tree (the American Larch) has really soft needles found in bunches on a stemlet along the tree’s branches. A wonderful tree of the north!
