Tamarack time

Photo by Barry Wallace
It's that time of year, when Tamarack trees (a.k.a.  Eastern Larch) get to show off their annual colour change.   The Tamarack is a deciduous conifer that is green most of the year before turning yellow in the fall and then losing its fine needles.   The trees pictured above are located at Cold Creek Conservation Area on the 11th Concession of King Township.   The Tamarack is a native Canadian Tree and grows from coast to coast.   It usually prefers moist soils.
