Bald Cypress Trees for Sale Online
Bald Cypress Trees are deciduous conifers and are typically used as a specimen or planted in small groves, particularly in wet soils, which is why they are often called Swamp Cypress. Bald Cypress Trees (Taxodium distichum) make beautiful, dense screening and windbreak trees and have terrific fall colors of reddish-browns through orange.
Bald Cypress Trees are long-lived wetland monarchs. They are an incredibly important component of floodplains, sloughs, swamps, or anywhere else that remains too wet for most other trees. These trees can often be seen in the swamps, where they are typically covered in Spanish moss.
Wood from mature Bald Cypress Trees is highly valuable due to its ability to withstand the elements, and because of this, it has spurned an industry of “recyclers” who salvage lumber from old buildings or sinker logs from waterways to put it back to use. Bald Cypress Trees' popularity as a landscape specimen has proven their tolerance to colder and drier conditions than their natural range indicates.
