The Bald Cypress is an interesting tree.  While during the growing season it looks like a cone bearing evergreen tree, it is actually a deciduous tree with a beautiful red fall color.

It is an incredible hardy tree and adapts to many different soil types.  It can handle full or partial sun.  It grows into a large tree with a mature size of 50-70 feet tall and 20-30 feet wide.  The Bald Cypress has a pyramidal growth habit and is a moderate grower.

It is native to the Midwest and is often found in groupings in parks and larger spaces, along streets, and around lakes.

This tree brings an interesting aspect into the landscape and can be the topic of conversation but must be planted with its mature size in mind.
