Yet the forests of larch in Siberia often suffer from conflagration.
The larch frequently attains a height of 100 ft.
For hop-poles it is not so well adapted as the larch.
The original varieties of trees still abound, though in less numbers, on lands illadapted to agriculture, and in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains, where the state has established forest preserves, and the Forest, Fish and Game Commissioner began reforesting in 1901, principally with pine, spruce and larch.
The state is reforesting portions of its preserve chiefly with pine, spruce and larch.
