Siberian and West Larch: Comparisons to Other Species in Central British Columbia.


Siberian larch (Larix siberica) and western larch Uarix occidentalis) may have potential for extension into central British Columbia, Canada. These larch species were grown with three native and one introduced species on four ecosystems. The 5-year results indicate that Siberian and western larch perform as well as, and in some cases better than, the native and other introduced species. On three of the four ecosystems, the performance of Siberian larch is slightly better than western larch.
