French tamarisk

(Tamarix gallica)

A deciduous tree, with small scale-like leaves attached to the twigs. Its trunk is not very straight, and it looks like a tall bush.

Characteristic

It is an essential part of the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park landscape, found close to the water of the irrigation channels and ponds, as well as in brackish water, right down to the beach. It forms thick hedges along the irrigation channels of places such as La Rubina or Sant Pere, as well as the brackish meadows around the Park.
