Came across this tree Sunday while paddling a nearby creek. It is about a 10
inch sweetgum growing out of the butt swell of a cypress tree. During normal
water levels the tree would be about 6-8 feet above the water line. There is
probably not another sweetgum within 100 yards as this cypress is out in the
creek itself. Hopefully this photo will post.

Will F,

Cool picture!

Where is this creek located? I bet the surrounding forest is nice.

Beeyouteeful trees! I've never seen bald cypress in it's natural habitat,
the cypress butt structure (dare I say trunk flare?) is amazing, the
sweetgum is a bonus! I have a lesser but charming enough equivalent, a
young red maple growing between swamp white oak surface roots:

Interesting trees! That is a very cool cypress. Where was it?

I have a photo of a sabal palm growing out of a live oak that's rather
funny. But I've given up trying to figure out how to post photos here.
