Stirniskes kuril larch


Contact us


This rare tree in Lithuania from the Kuril Islands brought and planted the last owner of Komarai’ manor Bogdanas Komaras. Larches, unlike other conifers, throw all the spikes each autumn, and in spring come into leaf with new soft spines. Kuril Larches are distinguished from the other trees of the family by a wide single-sided top crown. Currently, one of two Kuril larches in Lithuania, enclosed in a fence, grows in the Komarai Manor Park.
