Montezuma baldcypress trees, Taxodium mucronatum, line the banks of the Rio Cuchujaqui in the southern region of the Mexican state of Sonora. The tangled surface roots allow the trees to take advantage of surface water from floods. Some of the trees have taproots that reach very deep into the aquifer below to help them survive the dry seasons.
