  1. bald cypress

    The bald cypress is a deciduous coniferous tree that belongs to the cypress family. It is native to the southeastern United States and can be found in wet areas such as swamps or river banks. Also known as Taxodium distichum, it is known for its ability to thrive in waterlogged soils, its distinctive "knees" or root protrusions that emerge above the waterline, and its shaggy bark. Despite its name, the bald cypress is not a true cypress, but rather a close relative.
