Baldcypress tree is a wildlife playground!
Deciduous, great hurricane wind resistance, fall color, interesting foliage. Moth larval host.
Wildlife interaction: seeds are eaten by wild turkey, wood ducks, evening grosbeak, and squirrels. The seed is a minor part of the diet of waterfowl and wading birds. Yellow-throated warblers forage in the Spanish moss often found hanging on the branches of old cypress trees. Cypress domes provide watering places for a variety of birds, mammals, and reptiles of the surrounding pinelands. source: http://www.fs.fed.us/database/feis/plants/tree/taxdis/all.html
