American Larch
  • American Larch

    Larix larcina 


    Also known as Tamarack, it is widespread across Canada and tolerant of extreme cold. Male & female flowers appear on the same tree with cones opening in August. A deciduous conifer. Unusual because it drops its leaves in late fall after turning a bright amber colour.

    The durable wood has been used for posts, poles and making snowshoes. Larch is an important pioneer species to regenerate forests after a burn. It is aesthetically appealing for use as an ornamental and a popular species to use in bonsai cultivation.
