Tree that “stayed put”
As water levels dropped around it

For over a century …

The Lone Cypress has stood its ground.

Same tree, then

Or in other words, the tree has stayed put as the water level around it dropped out from under its roots by some ten feet.

And now

Once a navigational marker,

The Lone Cypress stands today as a hydrologic reminder …

Of Lake Okeechobee before it was drained.

I was out there a few years ago and we stopped to see the tree because you had written about it. It was really cool.
