Identifying Trees from a Distance

The Larch

The larch is the only deciduous member of the Pine family. A deciduous evergreen - now that's an oxymoron for you.

This post gives me a chuckle--not sure if you were a Monty Python fan--but they used to do a wacky sketch (did Monty Python do any other kind?) where someone would put a slide of this tree on the screen, and say in a solemn voice THE LARCH.

Thanks! You got it!! I *was* doing a Monty Python voice in this post, just wasn't sure if anybody else could hear it.
