Question:
I have found what I believe to be a Cypress tree on a small lake just north Of Joplin Missouri. It has small balls hanging in it now they are not smooth. Are these the seeds? And if so when can I plant them? I did not know they would grow this far north, but this one is probably 50 feet high.


Replies:
Does sound like the fruit of the cypress tree. The following should be helpful:
