tamarack, larch (Larix laricina; PINE FAMILY [Pinaceae]) Slow growing, deciduous(!) conifer which frequently falls far short of reaching its potential height of 40-80' because of poor sites.  Short (-1") needles seemingly clustered in bunches of 12 or more.  Cones small (-1" long].  Bark dark when mature, and flaking off in small scales.  Common in acid bogs.  Like black spruce, produces adventitious roots to replace those lost to sinking.  [019]
