Montezuma Cypress

Montezuma Cypress trees - the drier cousin of the Bald Cypress. These three trees all started their lives at the same time. Each tree has its own particular time to green up in the Spring and shed its small needle-like leaves in the fall. Never the same pattern, sometimes the one in the middle drops its leaves first. Just like triplet siblings, very similiar but each with its own characteristics.
