What kind of soil do you have it in? They need plenty of water, but good drainage.
What are you feeding it? Don't feed heavily.
When was it last repotted?
I assume you have it in full sun.
Which larch species is it?
Have you had a lot of wind?
Have you pinched or cut the first crop of needles?
Have you looked at them under a magnifying glass?

If you have recently repotted ....that is typical behavior.

If last year's crop of needles are turning brown, that's normal. Larch is deciduous, it loses all its needles in the fall and grows new ones in the spring. The needles may fall off in the fall, or hang on until spring before falling off.

John

I asked a similar question the other day:

Hopefully I have read your question correctly?

As Mike says, this problem has been posted recently. Larch needles are very tender and even brushing up against the foliage can damage it. Can you post a pic John? Wiring of larch should always be carried out when the tree is dormant.

John

I never remove my needles, They tend to fall away quite naturally when the Autumn (Fall) winds appear:-)

Good luck

If you Google on brown needles on larch, you will find there are several diseases or insects that can cause this problem. Get a magnifying glass. Suggest you contact your county extension agent if you can't figure it out.
