European Larch

Larix decidua

The European Larch is a long-lived and faster growing member of the Larch family.  However, unlike most conifers which keep their color and needles year round, the green needles on these turn to a beautiful yellow and orange in autumn.  The needles then fall off at the end of the season.  In spring, soft new green growth emerges and the cycle starts over once again.  Consider an American Tamarack for your wetter areas.

Product questions

    What is the average expected annual growth rate in the first 20 years?

    While there are many factors which will determine the growth rate, under normal growing, soil and moisture conditions, the European Larch will grow 12-18" per year on average. This would put the tree as 20-30' in height (or more) in about 20 years. Thanks for the question, CRN.

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.

Common uses for the European Larch:

  • Specimen tree with unique foliage
  • Fall color, needles turn yellow before falling
  • Naturalizing lowland areas around wetlands

The European Larch has minimal wildlife value.  However, Grouse will eat the foliage and the buds on this tree. The seeds are eaten by red crossbills, and the bark and seeds sometimes feed porcupines, squirrels and hares.
