Alpine (also called subalpine) and western larches are conifer trees that are deciduous. Their needles change color and drop to the group each year. These trees put on magnificent shows of yellow and orange in the Cascades and other mountains. In some regions, they are referred to as tamaracks. Right now, the alpine larches are at the peak of their color and I’d suggest that you head for the high mountains and enjoy them for this brief moment of the year before winter really sets in.
