A Tree that Loves Water

Cypress trees love to grow where there is a constant source of water like this one growing near the Lou Neff Point where Barton Creek meets Lady Bird Lake. The 'knees' on the roots and the fine foliage identify this tree. I believe these trees are actually native to Central Texas creeks.
