As I said, its a large deciduous conifer, maybe 75' around here, with a broadly conical shape. Lower branches usually are persistent unlike the coastal redwood. Very graceful, and beautiful bright green foliage turning slightly yellow but mostly brown in the winter. This one is located in Harvey West park.
The bark and trunks on old plants are really pretty amazing. The trunks develop deep cavities or indentations when they are quite old. Mature specimens can be more attractive in winter than summer. This one is at Longwood Gardens.
Fantastic grove in Corralitos across form the Corralitos Market.
Bald Cypress. Not really common here but there are a few. You can tell the difference by looking at the lateral branchlets, they are alternate and not opposite.
Nice ones abound
