Cypress Trees are evergreen tree favorites
Cypress Trees : Ever noticed trees 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 cypress, also known as taxodium distichum.
Along with the other deciduous conifers, bald cypresses form cones and sprout needles; but conversely, they change colors. 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.
When the cypress tree is in its dormant season, leaves/foliage which had once been green turn hues of orange and brown
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 near the base, where bald cypresses can reach 6 feet or more diameters. These growths are referred to as the "knees" and are usually seen in wetland areas. This can be a convenient choice for landscaping, 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, these trees can be found trimming parking lots and median strips. The heart of the tree is hard and rot-resistant.
