The branches of full-size larches are so widely spaced that the tree can look gaunt in Winter. No such problem with a dwarf such as 'Deborah Waxman', below. Dwarf larches are dwarf because their stems don't grow far at all before they produce new side branches. The overall size of the tree is greatly reduced, but it's plausible that a mature dwarf has about the same number of twigs as a mature full-sizer.
After years of the free-range life, this dwarf larch is being radically reconfigured. It will never have a full-size larch's complement of twigs, but it will do something even more extraordinary.
