Naturally found around lakes, ponds and small rivers, this tree prefers wet or at the very least, moist soil that also has sun. Taking the time to pick the right spot, however, is time well spent as you will be rewarded with a tree unique in every season. This tree, which can reach 75' in height, has a narrow crown of awl shaped green needles which in autumn turn an attractive red-brown. In winter, this deciduous tree drops its leaves exposing the irregular, outspread branching pattern along the light brown trunk which gradually thickens toward the base. It creates an impressive display.

Its more columnar habit (20'X 80') gives a "strong positive impression" (Dirr); for a trouble-free accent in large areas, whether wet or dry, with deeply furrowed bark ; bright green needles in summer. Sun/Med-Wet

We saw this cypress all over the lowland areas of South Carolina on our last visit. They looked like somber sentinels....Perhaps they are happier now that Strom Thurmond is dead. Decidious to 30 °F or so. Sun.
