Larch forest and swamps close to the tree line (taiga/tundra boundary) in Southern Taimyr, Russia, July 1993

In Northern Siberia are larches the tree species growing up to the tree line. Those trees in the short Arctic summer grow particular slow and therefore produce very hard timer. Siberian larch timber is therefore used as long lasting building material. Here in southern Taimyr are still untouched forests existing over large areas.
