Bald Cypress Tree Needles Are Light Colored And Grow Slowly

Question From: D. McKeon - Laredo, Texas, United States
Q: I have a Bald Cypress tree. In the spring when the needles start to com out again they grow very slowly and are a light green color but are not thick or big like my other cypress trees. my other bald cypress trees, the needles are a dark green and so pretty. Why are the needles on the one tree not as green and grow slowly?

A: Could be the weather. I recommend you have an on-site inspection from a tree doctor, a certified arborist who can give you more that a wild guess. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
