Description
Description

A major characteristic of the Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum) is that it is hardy and tough and would adapt to any soil type common in the southeastern United States. It is also called swamp cypress, red cypress, and tidewater red cypress. In Louisiana, it is the official state tree. The tree is large, has a longer life span, and a slow-growth rate. Above its roots are cypress knees, while the thin, fibrous bark is grayish-brown or reddish-brown. It has simple, alternate, green needle-like leaves, which it sheds during winter and grows new ones in spring. It can tolerate shade and humid conditions. It is a common source of timber or wood for making homes, canoes, and coffins.

Bald cypresses, belonging to the subfamily Taxodioideae, are a group of coniferous trees known for their distinctive deciduous nature, losing their needle-like leaves in the fall, unlike most conifers which are evergreen. Native to the southeastern United States, they thrive in wet, swampy areas.
