I’m going to be a little sad when fall is over, I’ve been really enjoying the yellow-orange of the larches this fall hiking season. . . . #larches #larch #deciduousconifer #pnw #pnwonderland #northwest #hike #nikonfallwa #nikonnofilter #wheredidtheweekendgo #wanderwashington #getoutdoors #optoutside #moodnation #visualsofearth #amongthewild #washingtonstate #nikond7500 #simple #wild #natural
The gold ancients of B.C. - my new favourite tree! 🌲 Meet: the subalpine larch - a deciduous conifer. In other words, a tree with cones whose leaves (the needles) also change in fall and drop. 🍂 Many of the trees here have been sampled and are thought to be around 2,000 years old! These slow growing trees have been around for the rise and fall of empires, adapting to hard, harsh winters. The wind and conditions have shaped these trees into twisty shapes with super soft needles that can survive so much, and look amazing while they do it ❤️ 🌲 In B.C. they grow only in parts of Manning Park and near the Rockies, but definitely worth the pilgrimage especially in beautiful fall weather 🍂 . . . #subalpinelarch #alpinelarch #larixlyallii #ancienttrees #jawdropping #beautifulbc #dailyhivevan #fallbeauty #treesofgold #deciduousconifer #leafpeeping #besthikes #getoutsideandexplore #IloveBC

It’s larch season in the park. The weather has been spectacular this weekend making this a great time to come and see the last big botanical display of the year. Larch trees are different than most conifers in that they drop their needles every fall. Just like other deciduous trees, dropping their leaves (needles) allows larch to move nutrients to other parts of the tree and conserve them for later. The result is a dramatic explosion of golden color every October. #goldenfall #larch #deciduousconifer #glaciernps
Did you know that not all conifers are evergreen? The #Pseudolarixamabilis is deciduous and right now is a wonderful golden colour. 🍁🍂🌲 Other conifers that have now started to turn in #BedgeburyPinetum  include the swamp cypress and the dawn redwood by Marshal’s Lake. Visit Bedgebury now to see their glorious autumn colours, or check out our website (link in bio) to find out more about deciduous conifers: https://bit.ly/2zlQbmI. . . #Bedgebury #Bedgeburytrees #Tree #treeconservation #conservation #conifer #conifers #forestfocus #forest #woodland #wood #forestbathing #Kent #Visitkent @explore_kent #weald #eastsussex @Sussex_central #kentlive @1066country #nonprofitorganisation #nonprofit #charity #autumn #autumnleafwatch #Pseudolarix #deciduousconifer #goldenlarch #Autumncolours #deciduousconifer #autumnleaves #loveautumn

Just a little Taxodium distichum fix in the middle of the week....'cuz we all need it, right? I mean, who doesn't love a deciduous conifer with all this style???? Need a tree that likes wet feet?? Look no further than the Bald Cypress. #armitagenursery #eugenelandscapes #autumnfoliage #deciduousconifer #notbaldyet #plantthistree
Three blocks of Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum) trees planted in center median strips in Arlington, VA. The decorative metal rails protect the trunks from fender damage and the roots from soil compaction by stray pedestrian traffic. And the tiny leaves are literally breeze to clean up in fall. I love seeing diversity in urban tree plantings like this.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #taxodiumdistichum #baldcypress #deciduousconifer #conifer #urbantrees #nativetreesofnorthamerica #wetlandplants #urbangreenspace #plantittuesday

Larch/Tamarack trees lighting up the mountains. One of the few deciduous conifers who’s needles turn yellow and drop every fall. #montana #treehugger #larch #seenonmyrun #trailrunning #getoutside #deciduousconifer
The seasons changing makes me miss VT and it’s beautiful colors but the larches did not disappoint 😍 🌲 #pnw #hike #larches #lakeann #DeciduousConifer !!
Pseudolarix Amabilis: Golden Larch. I planted five of these autumn gems in the island of my circle drive. So far a grove of pint-size bonsai. . #vashonisland #tallcloverfarm #goldenlarch #pseudolarix #deciduousconifer
LARCH SEASON 🌝🌝🌝
Fred Nilsen is very excited about trees, plants and the history of tree planting practices in the PNW. #fossiltree #dawnredwood #inktober #illustration #notebook #forestpark #deciduousconifer #pnw @forestparkconservancypdx
Feathery foliage of golden #dawnredwood is aglow all season—then is more colorful still before releasing for the winter. . Rare in so many ways—as a conifer that is deciduous, not evergreen; as a species that was thought anciently extinct until discovered in China after WWII; & as a gold-needled form—dawn #redwood is a cousin of the giant conifers of California, both sequoias & redwoods. . Hardy to coastal Maine, & quirkily perfect as a hedge, grove, topiary, or soloist, this tree demands far wider use. . . #metasequoia #metasequoiaglyptostroboides #metasequoiaglyptostroboidesogon . #kickassconifer #deciduousconifer #coniferstopruneandtrain #colorfulconifer #whoneedsflowers #deerproof . . #easy #growthis #bethefirstonyourblock #li . @louisraymonddesign .

As fall begins, I looked back at some old pictures from this same time of year to see if I was paying attention to some of the same things as I am this year, like what's still green, alternately sporting some amazing fall color and what's in bloom, wild or otherwise. I was. #seasons #summersend #fallbegins #whatsblooming #plantswithstyle #deciduousconifer #nativeplants #weeds #weed #goldenrod #aster #pokeweed #goldenlarch #wildflowers #psuedolarix #equinox #needles #leaves #bouquet

Bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) is native to the swamps of Louisiana, but surprisingly can take many different soil and moisture conditions. It is one of four deciduous conifers. Soon, the fine, feathery compound needles will turn burnt orange and fall off, revealing the orange flaky bark. Notice the base of the trunk already flaring and fluted even at a fairly young age. In a swamp, these trees grow their roots up out of the water in structures called "knees" as an adaptation to the brackish swamp water. I don't think that will be happening here in Broomfield City Park in Colorado! #gardening #garden #landscape #landscaping #trees #tree #deciduoustrees #deciduousconifer #deciduousconiferous #plants #loveplants
Tamarack, queen of trees. #larixlaricina #larch #deciduousconifer
Should I be worried?? Planted one of these in my garden a few years ago....the wonderful #metasequoiaglyptostroboides .....fantastic changes of colour over the year courtesy of it being a #deciduousconifer But so BIG! #dawnredwood ....clearly it’s ultimate size should have dawned on me earlier! @bethchattogardens
These deciduous coniferous trees have the softest look to them. Their real beauty is during autumn when they turn gold before dropping their needles. They are truly one of my favourite wetland plants. Tamarack - Larix laricina #flora #tree #conifer #deciduousconifer #nativespecies #nativeplants #treeidentification #wetlandplants
The beautiful, vibrant green leaves of the Dawn Redwood (#metasequoiaglyptostroboides )! 🌿🌲. Did you know that it is one of only 5 types of conifer which are deciduous? Even more incredible, is that it was thought to be long extinct until discovered in a remote valley in China in 1941! Luckily we have several trees in #BedgeburyPinetum for you to come and admire! 🌲❤🌳 . #Bedgebury #Lovebedgebury #Bedgeburytrees #Tree #treeconservation #conservation #conifer #forestfocus #forest #woodland #wood #forestbathing #Kent #Visitkent @explore_kent #weald #eastsussex @Sussex_central @thelivingweald #kentlive #supportacause #sponsor #nonprofitorganisation #nonprofit #charity  #dawnredwood #raretree #leafcloseup #deciduousconifer
Bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) - You probably wouldn’t know this about me, but before I was fascinated by flowers, I was fascinated by trees. My grandmother bought me the Audubon field guide to North American trees (Eastern edition) for my 7th birthday(which is going on 26 years old). I developed an uncanny ability to identity trees at a very young age. This tree is probably easy to ID for those of you in the southeast US, but fairly unusual to find growing in upstate NY, Bald cypress. Planted in a local park, it’s about 12 feet tall, and is a very healthy, beautiful specimen. I wasn’t expecting to see such a lovely southern tree growing so well up here!
George and the metasequoia (the dawn redwood)🌿 first described as a fossil of the Mesozoic Era, this tree was thought to be extinct until the 1940s when a few found in China #boyswithplants #savestoneleigh #metasequoia #deciduousconifer #mesozoic #naturallandstrust
The tamarack is easily my favourite conifer in this region. Being a decidious coniferous tree, how could I not love it? Those soft needles, their vibrant yellow colour in the fall, the way they line the ground once fallen, the cone formation... Always a gem. 🌲🌲🌲 #LarixLaricina #Tamarack #DeciduousConifer #Arboriculture #Tree #Love #Spring #Colour #June #CapeBreton #GoForAWalk

The #baldcypress are creating the #female #cones for their reproductive cycle. Seeing these is a first for me. I also learned that bald cypress are #monoecious which means they produce both male flowers (not pictured) and female cones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #naturephotography #naturecenter #takeawalk #naturewalk #gooutside #experientiallearning #virtualnaturewalk #plantreproduction #deciduousconifer

The very first plant we bought for the house was this baby #dawnredwood #metasequoia and he looked sickly, like he wouldn't last through the winter; alas, he lives and is growing beautifully. And Kensington is excited for school break. #conifer #deciduousconifer #metasequoiaglyptostroboides #sunshineligustrum #tigertail
Bald Cypress. Taxodium distichum. Cupressaceae. The rare and unique deciduous conifer! They have knees! They grow in swamps, bayous, rivers, and lakes! They can reach upwards of 2000 years old and 150 ft tall! They found an underwater stand of cypress in alabama that is MORE than 50,000 years old! The cones look like weird, amazing puzzles! I love them. So amazing. Why can't people be as good as trees?

The other day I discovered a few Dawn Redwood trees at the entrance to a favorite local park!🌿🌲🌿 They’re deciduous conifers, so their new leaves are just coming out. + + + I wonder if these particular trees were planted as landscaping? Or did they escape from the arboretum, or hop the fence of a neighborhood yard? This species is one of the three surviving types of redwoods (giant sequoias and coast redwoods being the other two). Dawn Redwoods were thought to have been extinct for millions of years, but in the 1940s, a living stand of them was discovered in a valley in China. Now, their seeds have been distributed all over the world. It’s leaves feel so fresh and new but the tree looks positively ancient🌿 + + + + #livingfossil #dawnredwood #metasequoia #deciduousconifer #newgrowth #pdx #springleaves

You know those days you spend walking through the forest and spring is everywhere and you’re surrounded by flowers and you hardly take any pictures and then you wish you could show everyone how gorgeous it was?

Bald cypress join a unique group of trees that are deciduous conifers. They are cone-bearing but will change color and lose their needles each year. #cypress #baldcypress #cypresscone #deciduousconifer #theyarenotdead #justlosetheirneedles #bigcypress #florida
It’s a girl!🤗💝🌏 In honor of Earth Day, I want to celebrate a living fossil - the Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba).⠀ ⠀ Instead of cones, the female trees develop naked ovules (yellow-green ‘buds’ on long green stalks in pic) tucked in among the new leaves. These will develop into the dreaded stinky, messy fruits in fall that are the bane of pedestrians. Unless you plan to grow these as trees on a large lawn or commercially for food or medicinal use, please select and plant only named male cultivars.⠀ ⠀ Ginkgo trees are a great choice for urban areas since they are tolerant of air pollution, soil compaction, and poor soils. They are also resistant to disease/insect pests, and snow/wind storms rarely bother them. An added benefit is that they tend to drop all their leaves quickly - overnight if there is a sudden cold snap - making fall cleanup of the bright yellow leaves easy.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #ginkgobiloba #ginkgo #maidenhairtree #gymnosperm #ginkgoaceae #dcgardens #treesofdc #earthday #dioecious #gametophyte #sustainablegardendesign #urbantrees #deciduousconifer #conifer #earthday2018
New shoots on the unusual and beautiful deciduous conifer Taxodium distichum. The Bald Cypress. #baldcypress #deciduousconifer #springtrees #cazrenshawdesigns
Larch is not your average evergreen tree. As a deciduous conifer, its needles turn a beautiful golden colour before falling in autumn 🍂. You can find these trees in the northern latitudes and mountainous regions like Kananaskis Country in Alberta 🇨🇦 #treefacts #trees #deciduous #coniferous #deciduousconifer #tamarack #larch #kananaskis #alberta #golden #autumn 🍁

Spring flora alert! The bald cypress at work is budding again, and the scent is woodsy perfection #baldcypress #deciduousconifer
Larch cone 🌲 • • • • • • • • • Larix decidua seeds are important food for finches, siskin and redpolls. The cones are larger than the native larch to Ontario, Larix laricina, and prefer drier soils that are not waterlogged. #larix #larixdecidua #europeanlarch #larch #cones #pinecones #pinaceae #pinales #plantae #forest #seeds #conifer #deciduousconifer #plants #trees #plantecology #tiny #tinyplants #tinybotany #botany #hiking #woodland #rural #ontario
It's not dead, it's a deciduous conifer! The Tamarack tree grows and drops its leaves annually because the energy spent on leaf production is still less than if it were to keep its leaves alive through the winter like other coniferous species. If cones and buds are present, it's alive. Now how cool is that? . . . #deciduousconifer #conifer #tamarack #larch #treesofinstagram #churchill #findtruenorth @frontiersnorth #exploreMB #exploreoutdoors
