[en] Decay resistance of Larch wood was examined at the species, provenance and tree levels. To realise this study, 313 trees were harvested in 13 contrasting populations of different ages derived from 2 natural stands (France, Austria) and 4 provenance/progeny trials (Germany, Belgium, France and Great-Britain). The material includes 11 European, 1 japanese and 2 hybrid larch origins.
