Tamarack ~ the yellow evergreen

Photo by Barry Wallace
(Larix laricina)
The Tamarack tree is an evergreen that turns yellow in the fall, like many deciduous trees.   It also loses its needles the way deciduous trees lose their leaves in fall.   It is also know as the Eastern Larch, Black Larch, Red Larch, American Larch and Hackmatack.   Wikipedia says the word tamarack is an Algonquian name for the species and means "wood used for snowshoes".
