In the center of tree species is the white core. The sapwood is narrow. Yearling rings clearly expressed. Resin ducts are hardly visible. The tree structure has a high density and a high specific weight, does not rot, it is very durable and resistant to mechanical damage. Is recommended for use as a building material in the harsh climatic conditions in the waterworks, construction of bridges, braces underground mining mines. Is characterized by high adaptation to the adverse and aggressive environments so often used in urban landscaping.
The area of growth – Western and Eastern Siberia. This region of Russia differs sharply continental climate. In summer, temperatures can rise to 45 degrees Celsius (113ºF), winter often drops to -60 degrees Celsius (-76.0ºF). Siberian larch growing area – an area of vast forests and the Siberian taiga, beyond of the Ural mountains, from west to east regions of Siberia’s Lake Baikal. In the north, the area is tundra, the South Mountains Sayan and Altai. On the Altai Mountains rises to 2.5 km above sea level. It grows in pure deciduous forests, and forms mixed forests with other trees (cedar, spruce, aspen, pine). Because of the resistance to adverse natural factors the first often settles on the places damaged by fire.
The pristine environment of this area is known throughout the world. It’s hard to believe, but many corners of the harsh edges is still untouched by human hands.The natural conditions of existence of the Siberian larch next to the river Angara and Yenisei river to pearl of the world – Lake Baikal guarantee that the structure of the Siberian larch is environmentally clean. In absolutely no allergens.
Very low as well as very high temperature promotes increased evaporation of moisture from the wood. Layers of Siberian larch are compressed and become like a stone.
