Montezuma Bald Cypress Tree Seeds (Taxodium huegelii) 20+Seeds
Montezuma Bald cypress, Mexico’s national tree, is a huge tree in its native habitat and is pyramidal when young with a dense crown but, like Baldcypress, eventually develops into a broad-topped, spreading, open specimen when mature with pendulous branches. Capable of reaching 100 to 150 feet in height, most landscape specimens will reach this height. The pale green, needle-like leaves are only deciduous in the colder sections of its range, remaining evergreen elsewhere. The trunk grows unusually thick toward the base, even on young trees. One of the most vivid examples of this trait is the Tule Cypress found growing in Oaxaca, Mexico, which sports a trunk diameter of 35 to 40 feet, or a circumference of
115 feet, while the tree itself is only 140 feet tall.
This tree has been estimated to be between 2,000 and 5,000 years old.
