Slice taken from a 29-32yr old Larch tree, sourced courtesy of a good friend Ben, working at Longwood Community Woodland. This Larch was originally one of the old plantation-crops introduced into native broadleaf habitats, and so Longwood is working to take them out as they age and encourage the more region-specific species to re-colonize.

Thirty-odd years ago…I was eight.
