Impoundment and baldcypress swamp management

October 21, 2006

Baldcypress swamps (Taxodium distichum) are impounded for many reasons, but this practice results in the demise of the swamp. The permanent impoundment of baldcypress swamps first lowers primary production and eventually results in death of the trees.
