Product Description

The most common coniferous forests in the world are larch forests, and the most important taiga is Siberian larch. This is valid especially for the West–Siberian lowlands, this species also climbs to the upper border of the forest. In broader spectrum, the Siberian larch also extends into north–east Europe. Just in Russian federation the larch forests cover approx. 264 mils. ha. which is around 38% of their forest lands. Trees in Siberia reach up to 40m and around 400 years of age. The point of origin for Siberian larch is the West–Siberian lowlands, southern part of the mountainous central Siberia, to the west it reaches into Europe until the south–eastern edge of the White sea and almost to the edge of lake Onega, to the east it goes through Asia until the Baikal lake and to the southeast until Mongolia. It grows from southern Asian borders of former USSR until the northern border of the tundra. Siberian larch grows from almost sea–level to 2250 above. It grows from widespread lowlands up until the Alpine border of mountain forests. Highest occurring in Altai (up to 3700m above sea level)

Colour: yellow–white to red–white sapwood, core–wood red–brown to dark red–brown, darkens. During stronger heating from the sun resin can seep through.

Density: approx. 650kg/m3.
