      Here's an example of distant knees. I saw a baldcypress tree growing on a riverbank, probably 30 feet above the water. Down at the bottom of the river's little canyon, in the shallow water at the river's edge, the bald cypress roots had grown a little forest of knees. Wherever you plant your baldcypress tree, keep the soil moist during dry weather. Cypress is also called the "wood eternal" because the heartwood is resistant to decay. Bald cypress is used for heavy construction, including docks, warehouses, boats and bridges, and was heavily logged in much of Texas.
