Balding

Bald Cypress, Magnolia Gardens, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved



The bald cypress is a deciduous conifer. Here it is gradually loosing its "hair" and will soon be completely bald for the winter.

Man, I feel its pain, because I can relate!

  18. We do not have this tree here, but I have seen them in the forests in Canada. It is a great tree! The colors here are splendid, and the reflections!

  19. I really like the central placement of the tree - and reflections, along with the wispy moss it look spectacular. And don't worry Doug, hair loss is compensated by growing in all those places that we wish it wouldn't!
