In a German evergreen forest there used to be a group of larch trees (which turn yellow in winter) deliberately planted in the shape of a swastika. abcnews.go.com/Internatio…
Today I learned about the Forest Swastika, a giant swastika made of larch trees in a pine forest 60 miles north of Berlin. The swastika was planted in 1938 by Nazis, but escaped detection until the early 1990s when an aerial survey of the land was made. The German government frantically destroyed it. amusingplanet.com/2016/10…
Larch trees were planted in a German forest that displayed a giant swastika when viewed from above. The design remained visible for over 60 years until the reunified German government discovered the site from aerial photographs. news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europ…
A formation of larch trees in the shape of a swastika was discovered in Germany in 1992. The formation, only visible in the fall, went unnoticed for 60 years. After that discovery, other forest swastikas were found in Germany and beyond. nydailynews.com/news/worl…
A patch of larch trees covering 0.89 acres of pine forest in northeastern Germany was planted and arranged to look like a swastika in 1938. In the autumn and in the spring, the colour of the larch leaves would change and contrast with the deep green of the pine forest to form the design. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For…
Larch trees are conifers that act like deciduous trees, dropping their needles in Autumn and regrowing them in the spring. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lar…

Between 1910 and 1926, it is estimated that 1 billion board feet ( 2 million cords) of larch were killed by the sawfly in Minnesota. Another large outbreak started in Minnesota in 1939 and extended into the mid- 1950's or later. dnr.state.mn.us/fid/augus…

During the time of the 3rd Reich, the Hitler Youth planted larches in a pine forest so that when autumn came it looked like a swastika from the air. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For…
Some coniferous trees are also deciduous. Larches use cones to disperse their seeds, and grow needles. They are among the dominant plants in the boreal forests of Siberia and Canada. Although they are conifers, larches are deciduous trees that lose their needles in the autumn. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lar…
