Bald Cypress Trees Might Be Your Answer 

A set of trees down near the water’s edge catches your attention as a bluebird takes flight. You recognize those trees as a variety you have always enjoyed — the bald cypress, also known as taxodium distichum. 

 

 The bald cypress tree is a deciduous conifer that can grow to be above 100 feet tall. Along with the other deciduous conifers, bald cypresses form cones and sprout needles; but conversely, they change colors in the fall and lose their needles every year like deciduous trees. The bark of this tree is not a bark considered light in color; in fact, it is a brownish-gray hue and rather chunky and string-like. The name “bald” comes from the fact that the bald cypress sheds every single one of its needles each season. When this tree is in its dormant season, leaves/foliage which had once been green turn hues of orange and brown.

 Bald Cypress Tree is hardy in zones 5 through 10

 The lifespan of the bald river cypress tree can stretch to an impressive 600 years in length. Many people recognize these trees because of a unique feature that can be seen down near the base, where bald cypresses can reach diameters of 6 feet or more. These growths are referred to as the “knees” and are usually seen in wetland areas. That can be a perfect choice for landscaping purposes, as it can thrive in swampy areas or areas that experience dry conditions. Bald cypress is monoecious, which means that both male and female reproductive exist in each tree. 

 

 Bald cypress trees can be found in USDA hardiness zones 5 through 10. It is a conifer native to much of the United States. The tree can add up to two feet of new growth per year and is considered fast-growing. For landscaping, you can find these trees trimming parking lots and median strips. The heart of the tree is hard and rot-resistant.
