It's November and the last splash of colour in the forests comes from the Tamarack (American Larch). It's always a wonderful contrast against the dark green of other conifers. The Tamarack is a deciduous conifer that loses its needles in the winter and there are people who feel the special green colour of its spring needles rivals that of its autumn gold ones. Tamarack can be found across eastern Canada and are prevalent along the Oak Ridges Moraine, here in King Township, Ontario. Lucky us.
