The American Tamarack is sometimes also known as the American Larch, Eastern Larch, Alaskan Larch and the Hackmatack.
The American Tamarack is a medium to large conifer that holds a special secret. Unlike most other conifers who are also evergreens, the American Tamarack's needles turn a beautiful yellow-orange color in fall and ultimately drop off the tree. The silhouette is interesting in form with its branches showing during the winter months. In spring, new soft green foliage emerges and the entire process starts again. This Tamarack makes a good choice for your low lying areas that such as wetlands and bogs. This tree will grow well in other areas as long as there is adequate moisture.
