Bald Cypress Trees
Bald Cypresses trees (Taxodium distichum) are deciduous trees and grow in a pyramid shape. These trees grow 50-70 feet tall and 25 feet wide at maturity. They also adapt well to wet or dry conditions. The annual growth rate is between 1 and 2 feet per year.
While the bald cypress is a Southern staple in and around swampy areas, the trees grow very well in acidic yards with sandy or loamy soil. They grow very well in hardiness zones 7-10 and prefer full sun.
