What's in a name?
Bald Cypress trees are quintessentially Louisiana. The Bald Cypress was named the state tree in 1963, but its importance to the people and topography of this area stretches back for millennia.
We love the name for so many reasons. These trees are resilient, they thrive in swamps, form strong, intertwined support systems at their base and - unlike most conifers - they are deciduous and their leaves renew every year.
