338 The Book of Woodcraft Tamarack, Larch or Hackmatack. (Larix laricina) A tall, straight, tree of the northern swamps yet often found flourish- ing on dry hillsides. One of the few conifers that shed all their leaves each fall. Leaves ^ to i inch long; cones ^ to | inch. Wood very resinous heavy and hard," a hard, soft wood" very durable as posts, in Manitoba I have seen tamarack fence posts unchanged after twenty years' wear. It is excellent for firewood, and makes good sticks for a rubbing stick fire. A cubic foot weighs 39 lbs. Found north nearly to the limit of trees; south to northern New Jersey and Minnesota.
