The trunks are about 30 m high, maximum 40 m. with a diameter at breast height of 0.5 to 1.0 m. 

 

Larch is a hardwood species with a heartwood that varies in color from light yellow-brown (Siberian larch), to yellow-brown, pinkish-brown and reddish-brown. The sapwood is clearly distinguishable from the heartwood and is yellowish to dirty white in color. The growth rings are very distinct. Each zone contains light early wood and dark late wood. When the log is sliced in crowns, it creates a beautiful flame pattern, while the wood sliced on quarter has a clear stripe pattern. 

Resin can cause some problems when working with wood. 


Larch has many applications: windows, doors, paneling, flooring, rowboats, etc. As a veneer, it is naturally used in the furniture industry and is very popular because it is easy to stain.
