Rare bald cypress takes its place on roster of champions

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette campus is home to more than 2,000 trees and large shrubs. Earlier this month, one was declared a champion.
About 40 students, faculty and staff attended a brief ceremony Nov. 16 celebrating the addition of the campus’ sole Montezuma bald cypress to the Louisiana Forestry Association’s Directory of Champions. The association judges native and naturalized trees on their height, circumference and crown spread to determine which make the championship cut.
