Question

I have this picture up as cones from a Japanese Larch (larix kaempferi) but I'm beginning to doubt myself now. The reasons I put it up as Japanese Larch was the way the mature cone seemed to be more open than on a European Larch and that the new branch in the background has a more reddish/orange colour to the bark rather than yellow. The tree itself was growing in a mature bit of woodland by the roadside and was a good 30-40 feet high. I've been meaning to get back and have another look at it (especially the needles) but haven't had time.

 

So if anyone can give me an answer one way or the other I'd be very grateful.

 

Thanks, Brian.

Problem solved.

 

Got back to have another look at the tree and it's European Larch (larix decidua). There are no white lines on the underside of the needles.
