The Larch Tree

Also called the Tamarack is not native to our area in the east Cariboo, but if planted here as a decorative tree it does very well.  It is a coniferous tree, but unlike all of it’s cousins, it sheds it’s needles in the fall. This one has turned a beautiful yellow colour (it is green all spring and summer and does not stand out at all.)   But  it is ready to drop it’s needles.  If a week or so it will be bare and look like it is dead.  A very interesting tree and I keep meaning to plant in our yard, but forget to every year – until the fall!
