Cypress Trees

Known for their characteristic “knees,” which protrude above the ground, cypress trees can live for hundreds of years. They thrive in forested wetlands like ours and play an important role in soaking up floodwaters and preventing erosion. Cypress cones, which look like nuts, are eaten by many birds and squirrels. These trees also provide a home to many species, from the fish and amphibians who breed in the protection of their base to the birds who nest in their tops.
