Bald Cypress

Bald cypress are an excellent and interesting shade tree for large park spaces and landscapes. The fast-growing trees can reach up to 100’ in height, with a pyramidal ‘Christmas-tree’ shape of layered branches — reaching a spread of 40’ once mature. The deciduous conifer has soft green needle-like leaves that turn copper-brown in the fall, and they exhibit lovely, papery cinnamon-brown, exfoliating bark.

Bald cypress can live anywhere. They can handle poor, compacted soils and flooding, and are adapted to drought and pollution, making them a great urban tree. When planted in consistently wet or swampy areas, they develop distinct ‘knees’ that protrude from the ground. Take these growths into consideration when choosing a planting location as bald cypress should never be planted close to homes, driveways, or sidewalks.
