Bald Cypress
Taxodium distichum

A large, long-lived tree reaching heights of 70-100’, bald cypress occurs in alluvial swamps and along major rivers and stream banks. In the original Southern forest, it was highly prized for excellent form and wood quality for making timbers, docks, boats, and exterior siding. The heartwood is very decay-resistant.
