I need help identifying this tree.

Sorry about the bad pics; all I had was my cellphone.

Yukon,



It looks like a baldcypress, or Taxodiaceae Taxodium distichum. From the pictures and the fruit/cone that you have pictured I think that is what it is. The cone from the bald cypress is pretty characteristic. I am not a tree expert or anywhere close so take that for what it is worth. Hope this helps.

I agree... Bald Cypress - Loves water - and as it matures, has a lot of "knees" that pop up above the soil in an area defined by the drip line. Tough on lawn mowers and bare footed toes.

My sister wrote this: "It's hard to tell from the first picture, from the second it kind of looks like a dawn redwood. If so, it's a conifer, but unlike most, it turns color in the fall and drops it's needles. Really cool it that's what it is, they were alive when dinosaurs walked the earth, only found in fossils until someone found a small grove of them in China or New Zealand less than 100 years ago and propagated them from there, now they grow on every continent. Just a guess on my part. Let me know."





Sorry I can help her, she lives in Oregon you know... :wink:
