The Quiz: These slow-growing giants love the water. What are they?
A Cypress trees
B Willow trees
C Oak trees
These bald cypress trees in Georgia are native to the southeastern US. They thrive in wet conditions like riverbanks and swamps and are common in the bayous of Louisiana and the coastal plains of the mid-Atlantic. Their roots don’t mind a good soaking and spread out below the waterline. This extensive root system protects coastlines from storm erosion and flooding while providing habitat for fish, amphibians, and birds.
The correct answer to this quiz is Cypress trees.
