The leaves of our Black Gum (Nyssa sylvatica) also known as Black Tupelo, and the Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum) are signaling a change of seasons.
These six-year-old native Kentucky trees add vertical structure and interest to our backyard and the birds use them year around. We thoroughly enjoy the trees in all their phases throughout the year.
