Can A Potted Bald Cypress Tree Be Kept Indoors During Winter

Question From: B. Kovacs - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: I have a 4 1/2 foot bald cypress tree. It was an impromptu purchase because I loved the trees look. Unfortunately I live in the city and I don't have a suitable place to plant this tree. I have been investigated on how I may be able to maintain and keep the tree indoors over the winter in a modest sized pot- this includes removing the root ball in the spring and trimming the roots clearing the soil and re-potting it. I guess I just want to see if this viable for the tree. I have a spot by the south west full glass door it can live for the winter and when the weather changes I can put it outside. Is this crazy? If not any additional advice would be great. Thanks BRIAN

A: Your tree was not meant to live indoors. It's dying. Get it outdoors. When the temperatures begin to freeze at night you can move it into a shed or unheated garage. Check out this website to read more:
