My favorite tree is the Tamarack or Larch - Larix laricina. Also called the Hackmatack.
Common to low areas such as swamps and bogs this tree also does well in well-drained upland sites. The larch can tolerate cold temperatures better than any tree in North America which is why you'll find it in the northernmost regions of the continent. As a forest product - lumber from the tamarack is exceedingly durable and rot-resistant. It's basically tough.

Hostilities had already ended seven months earlier with an armistice agreement between the Allied nations and Germany. It went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918 - Armistice Day - is generally regarded as the end of the war to end all wars.
World War I or The Great War came to an official close with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919.
