trussum pond

Delaware has some of the northernmost Bald Cypress trees in the nation and the best place to see these stately trees is Trussum Pond near Laurel. Bald Cypress trees can live for hundreds of years and the wood is valued for its water and rot resistance. There are many old Delaware homes as early as the colonial period covered with cypress shingles.

    Can you believe I used to ride my bike to Trussum and go swimming when I was a child. I don’t think I would swim there now but it is still a beautiful and unique place. Great picture and lighting.
