The same for oaks is true for tamaracks and larches (Larix spp.), our only deciduous conifers. You’re less likely to stumble upon a tamarack (Larix laricina) or see them from the road unless you’re on a mission to find them. They’re common denizens of cold, boggy areas, usually tucked in a thick .
European larches, on the other hand, are quite common. You’ll find small, solid stands scattered throughout the state. European larches were planted extensively as a commercial crop. They are one of the last trees to shed their leaves in the fall, with needles lasting into late November.
