Description: This paper illustrates how much, how long it takes, and the method in which young western larch responds to snow bend. A 13-year-old vigorous larch stand was flattened by a heavy, wet snow in June 1966 in northwestern Montana. We recorded photographically how two different crown classes (dominant and nondominant) of young larch subjected to four levels of snow beud (slight to severe) recuperated during the 11-year period following damage. The vigorous condition of the supple young larch contributed greatly to their remarkable recover.

Keywords: Larix occidentalis, western larch, snow bend, snow damage, crooked boles
