Ben at Ducks Folly Ryde Planting a Larch.

We chose this tree native tree as it provides food for squirrels and birds and importantly is helping to create a squirrel run from our oak trees to a copse running along the boundary of our garden. Larch are the only cone bearing trees which shed their needles (which are their leaves) in the autumn once they have turned a beautiful yellow colour. They then regrow in early spring. Larch grow incredibly tall 20/40 tall so not good in a small garden but they can cope with drought and wet conditions.
