Tamaracks Larax laricina are coniferous trees which lose their foliage in the autumn, as do deciduous trees. The cones are greatly prized by various winter finches as a source of high energy food. Also known as Eastern Larch, these pictures show the rich gold of these trees at this time of year.
Who knows, perhaps in a few months time they will be bedecked with crossbills and Pine Siskins.
