HOUSTON'S TRUSTED SOURCE FOR BALD CYPRESS TREES
Designated as the Official State Tree of Louisiana, the Bald Cypress is a massive, slow-growing, and long-lived tree. It typically grows to heights of 35–120 feet and is known by its needle-like leaves. The bald cypress grows in full sunlight to partial shade and matures best in wet or well-drained soil (although it can tolerate dry soil).
The Bald Cypress is abundant in East Texas and Southeastern Oklahoma and is native to humid climates and requires hot summers for optimal growth which is why it performs well in South Texas and Houston as well.
Before installing the Bald Cypress in Houston, you should consider its care. Drench the soil around the tree after planting and cover the root zone with 3 to 4 inches of organic mulch. Give the Cypress an extended soaking every week for the first few months. Bald Cypress trees need water the most in Spring when they enter a growth spurt and in fall just before they go dormant.
