Timber Library : Siberian Larch :

Where is Siberian Larch From?

The Siberian Larch tree, sometimes called Russian Larch, does indeed grow in Siberia, but Siberia is an enormous province in the east of Russia covering over 5 million square miles, or 77% of Russia’s land area, and is home to over 36 million people. The tree itself grows in the western areas of Siberia towards the Ural mountains.

The origin of the name ‘Siberia’ is quite hotly debated among historians, but the leading theory surmises it stems from the Turkish words for ‘water’ and ‘wild land’, or ‘su’ and ‘bir’ respectively.

The average weather conditions in Siberia range from highs of around 25 degrees in the summer, to an AVERAGE temperature in January of -25 (minus twenty five!!) degrees Celsius.

This bitterly cold weather produces slow-growing, dense and durable trees, which makes for perfect larch cladding and other external uses in the comparatively sauna-like conditions of the British Isles.

Plantations have recently started being managed in Austria, Norway and Finland, where milder temperatures result in a faster-grown, less dense timber, but the Siberian Larch iWood Timber supplies is from well managed, Siberian, FSC© certified forests.
