Tamarack is unique as a needle-leafed deciduous tree; its needles turn golden-yellow in fall, drop in winter, and reappear as soft green in spring. This tree has a fairly rapid growth rate, slower in wetter sites, reaching maturity in 100—200 years. It may reach a height of 50—75 feet with a crown spread of 15—25 feet. Tamarack is pyramidal when young, becoming more irregular and wider with age. Most commonly found in swamps, it will grow on well drained upland sites and can tolerate a wide range of soil moisture conditions. Tamarack is very intolerant of shade and drought. Uses include wildlife plantings, shelterbelts, wood products, and horticultural plantings. Do not plant near power lines.
