Larch Hike If you want to do a larch hike in Banff National Park, you’re spoiled for choice. But let’s back up a little. For those of you unfamiliar with my neck of the woods, larch trees are a big deal. In much of Western Canada and certainly where I live in Alberta, we don’t have a lot red foliage.

Larch definition is - any of a genus (Larix) of northern hemisphere trees of the pine family with short fascicled deciduous leaves; also: the wood of a larch. A Brief Look at Larches.

Larch trees (Larix spp.), also known as tamaracks, are needle-bearing conifers with an unusual trait: unlike pines, spruces, firs, and other coniferous relatives, larches are are adapted to cold, northerly and mountainous regions, where they are valued for their soft foliage, uniform growth habit, and brilliant golden foliage in the : Lovetoknow Staff.

Larch (Larix) Needles are deciduous. They fall from the tree in winter, turning brilliant yellow before they fall. Needles are about 1" long and typically grow in dense clusters () attached to short woody shoots (called spur shoots). Needles are soft to the touch--never sharp or spiny.

There are several types of larch trees native to North America. Those commonly found in the Lake Louise area are Larix lyalli, or the alpine larch.

Suited perfectly for a cold, snowy environment, the alpine larch has a fine wooly hair that shelters buds and twigs from harsh weather and helps to control slope erosion.

I recalled from Mathews’ book that western and subalpine larches had tufts of “deciduous” needles radiating from woody pegs—15 to 30 needles per peg for the western larch, 30 to 40 needles on a subalpine larch—almost like tiny, electric-shocked ponytails peppering their branches.

The tamarack, also known as the American larch, hackmatack, or eastern larch is a deciduous conifer, one of only few species of conifers that are not evergreen. It is in the Pinaceae (pine) family. In the autumn the needles of this small to medium sized tree turn a beautiful golden yellow and fall off.
