Larch Trees

This photo was taken on my way into town on one of those rare northern Michigan November days when the sun shines and the temperature is moderate. The larch tree, which belongs to the genus Larix, is distinguished among firs by its deciduous foliage. I have not seen the Larch south of where I live now, in the north west corner of Michigan. It stands out in the Spring with its light green needles and then again in the Fall when the needles turn golden. The Larch tree seems to drop its needles far later than any of the other deciduous trees and thus stands out in late Fall. I hope you enjoy the photo. Renate
