European Larch Seedling
European larch is an introduced deciduous conifer. It has become naturalized in Michigan. European larch wood is durable and strong, of moderately high density, with excellent toughness and stiffness. It is used for pulp, framing timber, roof tiles, flooring, and log houses. Larch wood is resistant to rot, and is therefore valuable for posts,
poles, railroad ties, mine props, wharves, and pilings.
