Larix decidua?

[/ QUOTE ]

Correct B'Bull, very good ID skills. Gord and Banjo were very close as well.

Someone else want to do another one? I need to do some digging in my photo collection to find a good pic.

Warning! very difficult!

The last few have been far too easy, this one is for advanced tree ID specialists and knowledgable treeworkers.

3 trees to ID here. 1 Conifer on left, 2 tree with climber, and 3 tallest twin stemmed tree that middle tree is hung up on.

Clues - These trees were in Scotland.

1 Conifer on the left of pic - Native to Northern Europe as far east as Siberia.

2 Tree with climber - Native to the Balkans, Greece, Macedonia etc, these days commonly found all over Europe.

3 Tallest twin stemmed tree that middle tree is hung up on - Native to East North America, Northern Europe and Asia.

Scots pine and a couple beeches?

[/ QUOTE ]

Scots Pine - correct, nice one banjo - Pinus sylvestris it is!

'couple beeches' - no, not beeches. They're two different species.

Guilty as charged, but I am really enjoying where this is going! I am learning as we go.

I'm sorry I called it a dumb old game.

Is the twin stem some kind of Acer?

[/ QUOTE ]

No, it is commonly planted as a city street/park tree in north east America, the UK and northern Europe. The timber is very soft and is good for carving.

Nope, but I do appreciate the ethnic geographical humour.
