Some people should recognize this by now.
It's growing about 100 metres from our home near our east pond.

Over the years, many of the Larix laricina that I thought I had found turned out to be Larix decidua. This one is young so it's not had any cones yet but I suspect it may be dicidua as laricina are farly rare in our immediate area. We have a decidua in our front lawn about 150 metres from the younger tree. On the other hand there are laricina on the Grand River a few kilometres from our property so it might be possible but . . .
