I liked this 'Juniper ' because of its shape. Great example of how they are easily modified and grow according to their particular environment. Maybe an animal broke it's too off completely while younger and it adapted well. Growing out up and back to above main body position. :)

I've seen fir have a similar shape (not quite as dramatic) due to moose eating off the top. I suspect you are right that the tree got chomped and is recovering. I've not seen it on a tamarack before though.
