Everything about: Cypress, bald

Bald Cypress, Swamp Cypress - Taxodium distichum (latin)

Areas of origin: South east of United States from Mississippi. Introduced in 1640.
Adult Dimensions: Height up to 50 m (164'), width up to 15m(49,2').
Foliage: Deciduous.
Soil Type: Acid and moist.
Hardiness: Hardy to -28°C.
Exposure: Full sun.


Properties and uses:
In wet areas  outgrowths of roots appear all around the trunk more than a metre in height to aid the respiration of the tree. This peculiarity along with the yellow brown foliage in autumn makes this a magnificent ornamental tree that can be planted alone close to areas of water. It has a life expectancy of 1000 years in the United States.  It is very useful in forestation of wet areas because it grows quickly and the non resinous wood is of a quality comparable with that of the Sylvester Pine.
