Bald Cypress (Taxodium Ditchum) where is spell check when u need it, Make great forrest plantings.

If you have the place to plant one in the ground near some water you will have a tree large enough to stand on its own in a few short years.

As far as airlayering, I never have ,I have friends that have. I never really had the need to working mostly on collected trees.

I just came across a killer cypress that I'd love to collect. It's right at the edge of a mountain bike trail so it's been hacked and cut back many times. It's certainly not a formal upright anymore, but the trunk has some major character. Assuming I got permission from the group that maintains the trail, it's probably too late in the year to collect now huh? Feb/March is ideal right?

Here we collect in Febuary & March before the buds swell, should be about the same for you. There are some others on IBC that collect in June. I have never tried it then but I think it would to hot. Maybe some others can chime in about summer collection.

Some very good information on developing ramification in a subtropical environment. Anyone have comments on development in a temperate climate with a much shorter growing season? I am thinking of the same basic approach but only one or sometimes two defoliations per year. This year it will be a max of one - my BC is just just now pushing buds and that is in the poly tunnel. We have had one of the one of the coolest, wettest springs on record in Spokane - we have had snowfall/sleet just about every week this far (sometimes multiple times per day/week).

I dont have much experience with snow down here. HE HE HE. The two defoliations should be fine I would imagine. One thing about a BC is that you cannot over water it.

I've only collected 1 during June but it responded really well. (Texas). Have heard that June in our neck of the woods is a super time to collect. Better even than January. Will try this year and post up results.
