Tamarack

Tamarack is the name of a tree, a species of larch trees. It comes from Algonquian (a Native American language) possibly meaning “wood used for snowshoes”. A poster named Boreas was the one who brought the name to my attention when he (or she) commented on the post about Linden; I’d never heard of it before than although I recognized the pictures when I looked it up. I’ve probably seen trees like that countless times but never knew the name of it.  But the more I think about it, the more I like it.

Nicknames: Tam, Tama, Tammy

Origin: Native American (Algonquian)

*Tamarack is the one with the yellow leaves*
