    Larch needle blight is usually more noticeable early in the spring because it infects all the needles on the short shoot (Figure 1). The infected needles turn red, then brown, wilt and remain hanging on the tree for one to two years. This process of needle death can occur in as little as three.   Firs, on the other hand, have much thinner needles and also bear one cone per shoot. Bald cypres, hemlock, pine, and spruce are also included in the same family of coniferous plants, each of which is also evergreen — with only a few exceptions in the redwood family, which only contains a few larch-like genus.
