Bald Cypress: deciduous conifer (hence the name ?bald?) with light green single needles in two rows.  Green spherical cones that will ripen to brown when mature.  ?Sequoia of the Midwest ? because it can live 500-750 years. The oldest one, found in North Carolina, is 1620 years old.  Non-native to the Midwest.
