Thank you to Regina Alvarez, Director of Horticulture and Woodland Management at the Central Park Conservancy in New York, for sharing today's photographs. Much appreciated!

The first photograph of bald cypress is from an ice storm that occurred a couple weeks ago, while the landscape perspective photograph of the stand of trees includes the same individual in autumn colour, along with one of the park's visitor centers.

Taxodium distichum was previously featured on BPotD, so I'll add two more links to the mix: Taxodium distichum from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center's Native Plant Database and the Kemper Center for Home Gardening's entry on Taxodium distichum both provide additional photographs, as well as cultivation, descriptive and economic information about the species.
