Mélčze commun
Europäische Lärche

Larix decidua, common name European larch, is a species of larch native to the mountains of central Europe, in the Alps and Carpathian Mountains, with disjunct lowland populations in northern Poland and southern Lithuania.

Larix decidua is a medium-size to large deciduous coniferous tree reaching 25–45 m tall, with a trunk up to 1 m diameter
It is very cold tolerant, able to survive winter temperatures down to at least -50°C, and is among the tree line trees in the Alps, reaching 2400 m altitude, though most abundant from 1000–2000 m. It only grows on well-drained soils, avoiding waterlogged ground.

The seeds are an important food for some birds, notably Siskin, Lesser Redpoll and Citril Finch, while the buds and immature cones are eaten by Capercaillie.

European Larch needles are the only known food for caterpillars of the case-bearer moth Coleophora sibiricella; its cone scales are used as food by the caterpillars of the tortrix moth Cydia illutana. (Wikipedia)

An interesting and beautiful tree, one I like to photograph. This group is growing on the tree line at 2000m altitude.

Ciao Anne, great view of beautiful trees with fantastic autumnal colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Anne a fine deciduous tree which is called simply Larch in the eastern US and Tamarack in the Western also Western Large. Their needles turn a golden color then drop...to be reborn in spring as I am sure you know well....

In the west we use them for firewood because they burn very hot. One 80 footer will last a half winter filled in with firs and pines,

A Superior image. I am so happy to see our version of this marvelous tree. Congratulations on a gorgeous image which needs not much from me and that's both my comment and crit.

Hello Anne,
