A species that is not considered native to Ohio but which can readily thrive in our environment. Baldcypress is a deciduous needle-bearing tree. Moisture and well drained soils are appreciated but are seldom found in those conditions in nature. Can do well in wetter, swampier areas. Small nursery grown trees transplant well and can produce a stately tree with fine texture and form in a sunny location.
