  1. bald-cypress or swamp cypress is a species of conifer native to the southeastern united states;
  2. it is a large tree, reaching 25–40 m tall and a trunk diameter of 2–3 m. the bark is gray-brown to red-brown, shallowly vertically fissured, with a stringy texture;
  3. the leaves are borne on deciduous branchlets that are spirally arranged on the stem but twisted at the base to lie in two horizontal ranks, 1-2 cm long and 1-2 mm broad; unlike most other species in the family cupressaceae, it is deciduous, losing the leaves in the winter months, hence the name ‘bald’.
