Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of tree is a larch tree?

The primary Larch in question in these parts is the Subalpine or Lyall’s Larch — larix lyallii. Larches are deciduous conifers, dropping their needles in a brief blast of green turning to yellow turning to gold in the fall, but otherwise having all the attributes of other conifers like spruce, pine & fir, since it is actually in the pine family.

Are there any Larches in the Pacific Northwest?

I started with “Natural History of the Pacific Northwest Mountains” by Daniel Mathews and “Northwest Trees” by Stephen Arno and Ramona Hammerly. According to Mathews, there are two larches native to Washington state: the western larch (Larix occidentalis) and subalpine larch (Larix lyallii).

How big are the cones on a larch tree?

Like all true conifers, larch is a cone-producing tree. The cylindrical larch seed cones have an oval to egg shape and grow between 0.5” and 3.5” (1 – 9 cm) long. Northern larch species have the smallest cones, and southern larches have longer cones.

Where are The Larches in Kananaskis Country?

Thanks to Lori Skulski for pointing them out to us; despite being 70′ tall, we had never noticed them before. The extreme northeast corner of K-Country (near Yamnuska) is the western edge of the native range of the Eastern Larch or Tamarack, larix laricina, of which there are many in Northern Alberta.
