Comments:There are 2 large Bald Cypresses at the house on Farish St. This one on the corner, is viewable from 8th St or Farish St. Bald Cypresses' needles have a particular glow in the sun, especially in spring. They grow"knees", root appendages providing air, when the trees live in water. They are known to thrive in swamps. Some over 2,000 years old live on the NC coast. Bald Cypresses also enjoy good health in dry sites, as we see here.
