ABSTRACT
The article offers information on larches. A number of larch species are endemic to the cooler regions and mountains of New Zealand's northern hemisphere. European larch and Japanese larch are the most common larches in the country. A moderately high density wood is produced by European larches with an obvious colour difference between sapwood and the darker orange-coloured heartwood, while the Japanese larch is slightly lower in density. Both wood species has excellent toughness and stiffness and is suitable for many of the same structural purposes as Douglas fir. However, larche demands more space and light in a silviculture.
