Tamarack trees ~ a.k.a. Larch

Jane Street and King Road
Larch trees, or Tamarack trees (Larix laracina) are native to Canada and are found coast to coast to coast, as well as in the north-eastern United States.   They are part of of the pine family and one of the only conifers to drop their needles in the fall.   But before they drop their needles, the needles turn a bright yellow, suddenly contrasting dramatically with other green conifers and deciduous trees that have shed their autumn leaves.
