Pond Cypress

Pond Cypress is a deciduous conifer closely related to the Baldcypress (Taxodium distichum) so widespread in the southern U.S. Pond Cypress is not usually as large as Baldcypress, produces little in the way of "Cypress knees" and is usually more narrowly pyramidal in outline as a young plant. Old trees are picturesque and flat topped. It grows most commonly in depressional wetlands rather than along streams and has scale-like, rather than feather-like, foliage. Grows well when planted on upland sites and is even used as a street tree. Native to southern U.S.
