New tamarack buds and cones

The two tamarack trees we have in our front field are budding profusely right now. As the only deciduous conifer native to Vermont, tamaracks lose their needles every fall and regrow them each spring. You can also see new cones emerging. These will take a season to mature. This particular tree also has quite a few mature cones from last season.
