I have a larch tree in my front yard, but I have difficulty to identify the species, or it is mixed?
Paging @Michael F !
Odd, I answered this one a couple of days ago but my post has disappeared!
Either Larix decidua or Larix sibirica, the cone photo isn't quite sharp enough to see if the cone scales are glabrous (L. decidua) or pubescent (L. sibirica).
The stems coming up through the cones are a minor deformation called 'proliferation'; it can happen in many different conifers, and doesn't have any relevance to the species identification.
Michael, I didn't see any previous reply to this.
Thanks for adding the info about the "proliferation".
Thank you for answering my question! Don’t know why the system didn’t sent me a notice.
Here I take another photo of the seed cone. About 4 cm, and 40 scales.

Got it, thank you.
Thanks! The scales look to be pubescent (hairy), so Siberian Larch Larix sibirica.
