Description

The bald cypress tree is a southern darling of a tree. In its native habitat, it displays a habit of raising “knees” from its roots. The function of these growths is a mystery, although some believe it is a way to help the roots get oxygen. This tree lives in swamps because it out-competes most other trees in such environments. The bald cypress does quite well when planted in the right soil in yards or along avenues and is a beautiful specimen tree. It has grown successfully in cities as far north as Milwaukee and in Texas.
