History

These trees were a few of many trees planted by Dr. Herbert Hechenbleikner at the VanLandingham Estate, and are some of the original Charlotte Treasure Trees.  Bald cypress is an ancient species of tree, and its wood is know for its water resistance.  Fallen prehistoric specimens are still found in the low oxygen water of the swamps they inhabit, thus it's sometimes called the 'wood eternal.'
