Bald Cypress

Taxodium distichum


Height 40' plus

Spread 30'


The Bald Cypress is a large deciduous tree with a moderate to fast growth rate. Adapts to a wide range of soils and will tolerate wet conditions. The leaves turn a coppery color in the fall. The growth shape tends to be pyramidal in habit. The bark is red-brown and vertically fissured which creates almost a stringy texture. The main trunk of the bald cypress can sometimes be surrounded by knees.
