Risks Associated with Growing Non-native Larches in Eastern North America
Abstract:Risks associated with growing non-native larches include growth loss and mortality related to their frost susceptibility, shade intolerance, stress on poor sites, diseases, insects, and animal damage. Proper selection of planting sites and seed sources, using disease-free dormant planting stock, and monitoring plantations for injury help reduce these risks. North. J. Appl. For. 2:101-104, Dec. 1985.
