Choose a planting location that receives full sun or partial shade.
Ensure the soil is well-draining, as the Bald Cypress Tree prefers moist conditions but can't tolerate waterlogged soil for extended periods.
Dig a hole that is slightly wider and equal in depth to the size of the root ball.
Gently remove the tree from its pot, taking care not to damage the roots.
Place the tree in the hole, ensuring that the top of the root ball is level with or slightly above the surrounding soil surface.
Backfill the hole with soil, firming it gently around the root ball to eliminate air pockets.
Water the tree thoroughly to settle the soil and provide initial hydration.
Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree, extending it a few inches away from the trunk, to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
Monitor the tree's moisture levels regularly, ensuring that it receives adequate water during dry periods.

Bald Cypress trees are considered "deciduous conifers." While most conifers are evergreen, meaning they retain their needles year-round, the Bald Cypress tree is one of the few conifer species that sheds its foliage in the fall, revealing its bare branches during winter. This unique characteristic sets it apart from other conifers and adds an interesting twist to its seasonal appearance.
