About Pond Cypress

From the U.S. Forest Service:

"Cypress is a large-sized, native, deciduous, conifer, frequently 100 to 120 feet (30-37 m) in height.  It is slow growing and very long-lived. Individual trees have been reported up to 1,200 years old in Georgia and South Carolina.  In the forest, bald cypress typically has a broad, irregular crown, often draped in curtains and streams of gray Spanish moss. The trunks of older trees are massive, tapering, and particularly when growing in swamps, buttressed at the base. The deciduous leaves are linear and flat with blades mostly spreading, fastened alternately around the twig. Cypress is monoecious with its male and female flowers forming slender tassel-like structures near the edge of the branchlets. The bark of cypress is usually quite thin and fibrous with an interwoven pattern of narrow flat ridges and narrow furrows.  Cypress develops a taproot as well as horizontal roots that lie just below the surface and extend 20 to 50 feet (6-15 m) before bending down.

Knees: Cypress knees are a unique polymorphic structure of cypress trees. They start out as small swellings on the upper surface of a horizontal root and then protrude above the mud and water providing extra needed support. They vary in height from 1 to 12 feet (0.3-3.7 m) depending on the level of the water."


About Jonsteen's Seedlings

All of our trees are seed-grown at our nursery on California's Redwood Coast, which is inspected monthly and licensed by the California Department of Agriculture. Trees can provide a natural barrier against high winds, temperatures, noise pollution and soil erosion, all while benefiting local air quality, wildlife and property values — a Jonsteen seedling will only grow in value and beauty!


About Jonsteen's 100% Guarantee

All of our trees are guaranteed to arrive healthy and in good condition. If your tree perishes despite your honest efforts, we will be happy to replace it with a small-sized seedling for just the cost of shipping/handling. You can learn more about our guarantee and tree replacement policy here.


Seedling Size Chart: Medium

Due to the dynamic nature of actively growing trees, as well as the tremendous variation between species’ growth rates, we rely on the cubic volume of a seedling’s root mass to determine its “size” (Small / Medium / Large / XL). Within each size there is minor variance — the dimensions provided here represent the category minimum. If exact measurements are essential, please contact us about current stock.
