Thanks for sharing this picture. Always wondered what this speciman looked like, having read about in several places. 5/5

Hello Hank, I congratulate you. Your photo of the bald cypress is incredible. I have contributed a copy in Spain, but it has nothing to do. Regards Gaspar

So strange shape at the base. It remember me some planes in a big park in the north of Italy, at Racconigi Castle, where the trees supply water near the superficies of the ground. So they have large bases but not go down deep.

Hi Hank, that's a great picture. Welcome! I once tried to find this tree (stayed in the St. Francisville Inn) but the NWR was flooded. I couldn't get my car much further than half a mile behind the gate. Guess I have to back there.

Individual shown in the photo is over six feet tall. The tree shown is the National Bald-cypress tree in Cat Island NWR minutes from historic St. Francisville, La.
