126a Bald Jpg
66 Trail Road North, Elizabethtown PA

Growing atop the bank of a small stream, this is one of only two Bald Cypress in Lancaster County known to have the famous “knees” (the other being at Conestoga House & Gardens; see that entry for comments on the knees).  This 50-60 foot cypress was planted around 1990.

This amazing species is the only tree in the world that, under the right conditions, grows the strange structures that we call “knees.”
