Note: Usually associated with wet, swampy soils, the Baldcypress is adapted to a wide variety of soil types and environments and performs well in urban landscapes. The distinct form, rapid growth of young trees and feather-like foliage make this species popular, but the formation of woody knees can cause problems in mowed areas. Individual specimens with heavy female cone production may also cause litter issues on walkways and parking lots.
