|“||Fili and Kili were at the top of a tall larch like an enormous Christmas tree.||”|
–The Hobbit, Out of the Frying-Pan into the Fire
Larch Trees can be found in Mountainous biomes or near large rivers. All of the biomes in which they can be found are listed below (note that in several of these, the larch can only be found in a 'Larch Forest' biome variant):
Andrast, Blackroot Vale, Celebrant, Coldfells, Eaves of Lothlórien, Eregion, Gladden Fields, Grey Mountains, Lamedon, Lothlórien, Misty Mountains, Mountains of the Wind, Northern Mirkwood, Púkel, Red Mountains, Vales of Anduin, White Mountains, Woodland Realm
Larch trees can easily be distinguished from other similar trees by their lime colour leaves and their grey wood. Their shape and build is similar to that of a spruce tree, however they tend to grow much taller. They can also have many more 'levels' than their shorter counterparts.
Raw larch wood blocks can be harvested from larch trees, and crafted into planks. These larch wood planks can then be crafted into larch wood fences, slabs, and stairs. These items are crafted on a regular crafting table. Larch tree leaves may yield larch tree saplings when broken with a fist, and will yield leaf blocks and saplings if broken with shears.
In real life, larch trees are deciduous and lose their needles in the winter. They are one of the few conifers to do this.
