Tamarack Tree In Autumn

Tamarack Tree with Yellow Needles
Tamarack in Wisconsin Bog

Tamarack trees are funny trees.  Their needles are supper soft, not pokey like most of the needles from pine or spruce trees.  Most conifers hold on to their needs for long periods and are never without living, green needles.  Not so the deciduous tamarack that drops all of its needles every fall.  The light green needles turn a wonderful golden-yellow before carpeting the coniferous swamps where it grows.
