A very large Bald Cypress has been discovered in the Hatchie River bottoms near Stanton Tennessee. According to our local newspaper, The Fayette Falcon, it is over 130 feet high, with a crown width of 63 feet and trunk circumference of almost 43 feet (chest height). I is estimated to be over 800 years old.

Dear Jackie,
