We sell & ship Bald Cypress trees! This is a tree you do not want to miss out on! The bald cypress tree is the classic tree of southern swamps. The Bald Cypress, also known as the swamp cypress, makes a fantastic shade tree, that has the look of a conifer evergreen. In its native habitat, it displays a peculiar habit of raising conical "knees" from its roots. The function of these growths is something of a mystery, although some believe it is a way to help the roots get oxygen. This tree dwells in swamps because it out-competes most other trees on such sites. 
To the surprise of many, the bald cypress does quite well when planted in the right soil in yards or along streets and is a beautiful specimen tree. It has grown successfully in cities as far north as Milwaukee and on dry Texas hills. This tree has evergreen-like foliage but it actually loses the foliage in the winter like a normal deciduous tree. The bald cypress tree is a great shade tree. The scientific name of the Bald Cypress is Taxodium distichum. The bald cypress can grow & thrive in wet areas, where other trees just die.

Two Gallon Pot — 18-30" inches tall (more roots than trade gallon size)



All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.

bald cypress rating

I was a bit skeptical about ordering a Bald Cypress Tree online, but Weaver Family Farms Nursery exceeded my expectations! The tree arrived healthy and robust, and it's already thriving in my yard. It's the perfect addition to my garden, and I love that it's a native species. Highly recommend

Bald Cypress trees

My two trees arrived quickly and expertly packaged. They are bare rooted and I planted them as suggested. When ordering note that bare rooted trees should be planted immediately. Plan accordingly.
