Tamarack Tree Seeds
Tamarack has one of the largest distributions of all North American conifers. It ranges in a wide band from Newfoundland, through the northeastern U.S., into British Columbia and northwards into the Yukon. One of the most unique characteristics of Tamarack is that it is a deciduous conifer. In the summer the clustered needles are a soft blue-green colour; but in the fall they turn a brilliant golden yellow and drop to the ground.
Due to its long slender branches and delicate foliage, Tamarack is commonly planted as an ornamental. It is a fast-growing tree that ranges from 12-24 metres (40-80 feet) in height and 30-60 centimetres (1-2 feet) in diameter.
Tamarack can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefers moist soil with a high organic content. On average, Tamaracks live for about 165 years.
