Bald Cypress - The Slow-Growing Long-Living Trees

Why Bald Cypress?

The bald cypress, the state tree of Louisiana, is the perfect addition to your backyard. In the fall, the tree leaves change from forest green to tan, cinnamon, and fiery orange, adding to its beauty and mythical look. These slow-growing trees reach up to 600 years in age and play an important role in preserving wildlife.

Taxodium distichum tends to grow in the rivers and wetlands. Widely distributed along the Atlantic Coastal Plain, these trees are generally restricted to the wetlands where moisture is abundant. Although, they are also found in dry areas and are planted as ornamental trees because of their Spanish moss-like leaves and knee-like roots.

Despite its thin bark, the bald cypress is excellent at absorbing floodwater and preventing erosion. It also traps pollutants and stops them from spreading, thus aiding the wildlife and the environment.

The rot-resistant heartwood is valued for multiple treasures. The bald cypress is widely used to make boats, cabinets, fence posts, and flooring.

Pollination Information

Pollination of Bald Cypress Tree (2-3 Foot) (Taxodium distichum):

Bald Cypress flowers are monoecious, meaning male and female flowers are borne on the same tree. The flowers are wind-pollinated and produce small, inconspicuous cones. The woody cones that follow contain numerous small, winged seeds that are dispersed by wind. Bald Cypress is a remarkable tree known for its unique adaptation to wetland environments. It is a popular choice for planting in wetland restoration projects, rain gardens, and aquatic landscapes. Bald Cypress is valued for its attractive, needle-like foliage and stunning autumn color display. The tree's distinctive "knees" or pneumatophores that rise above the water's surface are an intriguing feature that provides oxygen to the tree's roots in waterlogged soils. Bald Cypress wood is highly prized for its durability and resistance to decay, making it valuable for outdoor construction and building materials. Conservation efforts aim to preserve and restore wetland habitats, which are critical for biodiversity, flood control, and water purification. Sustainable forestry practices focus on responsible harvesting and utilization of Bald Cypress wood while promoting the conservation of this unique wetland tree. Bald Cypress is an excellent choice for eco-friendly landscaping projects that prioritize the use of native plants and support wetland restoration efforts.



It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
