Comments: If trees could tell stories, what story would this amazing tree have to share? Was it stunted by wind damage, a lighting strike, or something else? Whatever the damage, it didn't give up and has continued to grow for many years. These dwarf cypress are deceptively old. While exact dates are hard to find, many believe that they may be several hundred years old. Their small size is simply a result of the poor soil in which they grow.
