About Your Bald Cypress Tree

Bald Cypress Trees are a long-lived wetland monarch. They are an incredibly important component of floodplains, sloughs, swamps, or anywhere else that remains too wet for most other trees. Wood from mature Bald Cypress Trees is highly valuable due to its ability to withstand the elements, and because of this 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 its tolerance to colder and drier conditions than its natural range indicates.

How to Care for Bald Cypress Tree

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Bald Cypress Tree plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Bald Cypress Tree to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.
