The highest known larches in Europe and even the whole world can be found in the Hessian Forestry Office in Burghaun. At 54.5 metres, the highest larch is located in the former county of Schlitz. The European larch is not native to Hessen. Cultivation in Schlitzerland dates back to 1742. The oldest larches, which can still be found locally today, have 190 eventful years behind them. The diameter of some trees in the lower part of the trunk reaches values of more than one metre.
