The European Larch is also sometimes known as the Common Larch.
The European Larch is a large conifer that holds a special secret. Unlike most other conifers who are also evergreens, the European Larch's needles turn a beautiful color in fall and ultimately drop off the tree. The silhouette is interesting in form with large sweeping branches during the winter months. In spring, new soft green foliage emerges and the entire process starts again. These larches are long lived and have been known to live to be 500+ years old. This larch makes a good choice for your low lying areas that dry out once in a while. This tree will grow well in upland areas as well.
