71-year-old-larch-at-jericho-forest-vermont
European larch, planted 1941 at Jericho Research Forest, VT on abandoned farmland, in mixed plantation with Austrian pine (25% of initial planting) and ponderosa pine (25%). Most of the pines are now dead and the larch exceeded them in height growth anyway so grew at a lower effective density than the adjacent Japanese larch. Some of the Europeans are well over 30” dbh.
