Baldcyprus

#6 - Baldcypress (Taxodium distichum)

Baldcypress family, Taxodiaceae

This native is another deciduous conifer, shedding its needles each fall after they turn from green to bronze. The tall, narrow tree grows well in wet locations where it can develop strange protuberances or "knees" around the tree base. The small, round cones are about 1-inch in diameter.
