I just have to stand back and admire the colour of this young Larch tree as it turns a buttery golden yellow -early November 2013. Larix decidua.
As young trees they give a fresh green look to spring gardens, and light up the autumn garden before the foliage falls. This example is approximately ten years old and growing away nicely in the Ice House Coppice at Compton Verney, it looks particularly good next to the darker foliage of the mature Yew trees that are sprinkled throughout the wood. I hope it has a long, disease free future ahead of it!
