Quick Overview

Why it rocks:

Bald Cypress is a truly unique tree and has been gaining in popularity in recent years. Voted urban tree of the year in 2007, this tree's interesting characteristics make it a truly stand out tree. Bald Cypress has the appearance of an evergreen tree, but it will actually lose its needle-like leaves in the fall after they turn a brilliant copper color. Bald Cypress has an outstanding coppery fall color and a soft droopy needle which adds texture to the landscape. This tree is a true gem. 

Where to put it:

Bald Cypress is often planted in the same locations as an evergreen tree would normally be planted, along property lines, at the corner of a property, as a focal point in a yard. They are great for adding privacy and screening to your yard. Our Bald Cypress are trimmed up to around 4-5 ft from the ground, these would also be great in the parkway's to add shade to streets and homes. Because of Bald Cypress's size, we recommend planting at least 15 ft away from buildings. Bald Cypress does spectacular in wet locations and can actually help remove water from wet parts of a yard. Native to the wetlands of the South, Bald Cypress also does surprisingly well in dryer soils and urban climates. Bald Cypress is all around a fantastic tree. 

What it needs:

Bald Cypress is tolerant of most conditions and may be a good substitute for evergreens in wet locations.
