Pond-cypress

Pond-cypress, Taxodium ascendens, is surely the tree that typifies the Big Cypress Swamp, growing as stunted individuals in dwarf cypress prairies, or as sizeable trees in domes and strands. The leaves of pond-cypress tend to be closely appressed to the upward reaching deciduous branches. The spherical cones break apart to release seeds that fall in water and germinate when exposed to air. These round structures are analogous to the more familiar cones of pine trees.
