Tamarack (Larix laricina)

  • The tamarack is a beautiful native conifer that loses its needles in fall. They are commonly found in wet, swampy or boggy locations, but can grow in other locations as long as soil moisture is consistent. 

    Tamaracks are eye-catching throughout the year. In spring, small rosy pink cones can be seen as new needles begin to emerge. In summer, the soft green needles give the tree a fine texture. In autumn, their needles turn a striking yellow before they fall.
