How to identify a Larch tree

  • Larch trees are conifers.
  • In spring, the leaves of a larch tree are a bright green colour but in autumn they turn golden yellow.
  • They have clusters or 'tufts' of short needles on its twiggy branches.
  • They have upright cones.

 

How to identify a Rowan tree

  • The leaves grow on alternate pairs on the twig.
  • Rowan trees generally only grow to around 10 metres tall.
  • A rowan tree has berries which ripen to a red colour.
  • The bark is smooth, shiny and grey.
