Attribute of Bald Cypress
- It’s a large tree to over 100 feet tall and a straight trunk to 8 feet in diameter, with numerous ascending branches.
- Young trees display a narrow, conical outline, but old trees have a swollen, fluted base, a slowly tapering trunk, and a broad, open, flat top.
- But bald cypress need not grow in or near water. It grows well in average soil conditions and can tolerate slightly alkaline (not extremely alkaline) and acidic soils in a sunny location.
- Leaf color varies through the season, starting off light green and then changing to darker green, before reaching the orange to golden-yellow coloration in late fall and winter.
