TOPIC: Are these spider mites?

Are these spider mites? 8 months 2 weeks ago #33832

Here are today's pictures. More needles started turning yellow at the tips :/ Also you can see how deflated recent growth is. There is one picture of another, healthy larch for comparison .

Yeah, if it fails to start it can be due t pruning. Keep on the dry side. Do give the plant sun. It did sprout foliage, so chances are it will pull through. But yuo mmay loose the branchllets :(

Larch love sun. If you do not let it dry out (Nor keep it soaking wet!) if will do very well in sun. In shade they are very quickly unhappy. But the branches do not look too happy.The first picture you just posted does not look too bad though.

Ok I'm keeping it in the sun then :). Btw do you think that full sun form 8:00 till 14:00 is enough or not?

Here is how the tree loks now, I really hope it will pull through it.
I did a small scratch test on a bark and its green underneath fortunetaly :).
