Although a conifer, the larch (aka Tamarack) is a deciduous tree and loses its leaves in the autumn. They are native to much of the cooler temperate northern hemisphere, on lowlands in the north and high on mountains further south. Larch are among the dominant plants in the immense boreal forests of Russia and Canada. Wikipedia
