Ancient Cypress Stand on Black River Saved

Record #:
The North Carolina Nature Conservancy has signed a conservation easement agreement with two Bladen County landowners that will permanently protect twenty-three acres of forest in the Black River Swamp. The acreage contains a stand of 1,000-year-old bald cypress trees. Some of them date back to 364 A.D., making the trees some of the oldest ones east of the Rocky Mountains.
