Bald cypress, a long-lived wetland monarch, is an incredibly important component of floodplains, sloughs, swamps, brakes, or anywhere else that remains too wet for most other trees. Wood from mature trees is highly valuable due to its ability to withstand the elements, and because of this has spurned an industry of “recyclers” who salvage lumber from old buildings or sinker logs from waterways to put it back to use. Baldcypress’ popularity as a landscape specimen has proven its tolerance to colder and drier conditions than its natural range indicates.

Here’s a tip: If you want to increase the chance of turkeys roosting on your property, plant several clumps of cypress in or around your food plots. Turkeys love the horizontal branching habit of this species, and will choose them over other trees when given the option.  Here is another tip: If you have or plan on installing a small bridge on your property, or already have one and don’t want to lose it to erosion, plant several cypress trees downstream. The roots will form upright growths called knees that trap sediment and material to slow the flow and greatly reduce erosion.

Wonderful whips - repeat buyer of Bald Cyress

Four years ago I purchased and planted several bare root Bald Cypress whips from Nativ Nurseries. The root systems were extremely well developed. I ordered 10 more, received them a few days later, and had planted them with roots completely submerged in muck in a vernal pond and along my backyard riverbank within 3 hours of delivery by USPS. My 4 year old bald cypress from Nativ are now 6-8 feet tall with canopies almost as wide. I plant tulips for myself and trees for future generations.
