This full pyramidal deciduous is ideal for wet locations, but the trees will grow remarkably well on almost any soil. It maintains a desirable straight trunk and a moderately dense canopy reaching 75 ft. in height and up to 35 ft. wide. Bald Cypress trees do not form multiple leaders as do many other large trees making them relatively maintenance free. Tolerates drought and flooding well. Foliage is dark green during spring and summer and turns copper and yellow during fall.
