This quintessential tree of southern bayous is surprisingly adaptable. It’s cold hardy throughout the Catskills and needs only moist soil to thrive, not a bayou. It’s an obvious choice for pond side or a sunny, wet swale. Think of it as a native alternative to Weeping Willow. The foliage turns amber yellow in fall before falling. Most Bald Cypresses live about 500 years, the record is over 1,000. This is a tree to plant not only for your grandchildren but for many generations to come.
