Bald cypress leafing out

The bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) is a coniferous tree but it loses its leaves in the winter. This bald cypress is just now getting this year's leaves. The natural habitat of bald cypress is low wet soil, but this tree is on rather high ground so it likely was planted there many years ago. In Knox County, April 8, 2010.

Correction 4/14/2010: This scene is in Gibson County, not Knox County. On the other side of the White River.
