Bald cypress, wet season (07/2012)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In winter dry season, bald-cypress trees appear bare and lifeless. Though conifers, they shed their needles seasonally, becoming green again in spring. These trees are full-grown, but shallow water and thin soil have stunted them here. Farther west along the road you can see much taller bald-cypress growing in distinctive domes. They are the same species of trees thriving in deeper pools with rich accumulations of peat.
