Larch/Tamarack- American, European, or Japanese?
I'm trying to figure out the difference between them all. Is one more disease resistant than the others or ? Will do some more Googlin'...for pictures etc.
I have a lovely little larch that I found near it's mother in the woods. I can't believe that it's not considered part of the evergreen family as it has the tinyest little cones but it does drop it's needles each year. I havn't had any problens with it yet so I don't have an answer for you.
As far as how they differ, I guess its all on how the needles appear on the branch. Because of the spacing of the needles on my tree, I call it a larch. A good tree book shows you the difference. Mine has a single trunk and is shaped like a spruce.
