Folks: I am an afficianado of old-growth forests and routinely ask students how they can tell an old-growth from a previously clear-cut forest. With cypress the buttressing is an adaptation to prevent tip over but they are not immune to limb loss and even trunk breakage during hurricanes. But they are great at self-repair. At the Loxahatachee Refuge an ~100 year old stand has cypress trunks from 7 -45 cm diameter above the buttress. So far I have not seen seedlings in 10 years (Probably needs long droughts to establish) so the size range is due to differences in frequency and amount of repair with variable slowing of growth rate.

To help you feel "at home" and "more connected" to the water.
We didn't so much "reinvent the water cycle" as we gave it a reboot for our modern times.
We cover them all: The Districts, the estuaries, the aquifers and the watersheds. Also the rain, and the dew. Plus the humidity. Did I mention evaporation? The list goes on.
