Larch

Although a conifer, the larch is a ‘deciduous’ tree which means it loses its leaves/needles in the autumn…

… So not recommended as Christmas tree! …

It’s Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos.

  2. Larch trees turn such a beautiful gold before they drop their needles.

  7. Not sure if my 1st comment went through.

    Your 1st photo is wonderful. Such great detail.

    I could see where having a Larch as a Christmas tree would pose a big problem. - Although we've had a few fir trees that looked a bit like that after a week or so. Cut too soon.
