Wilmington City Park by Wilmington National Cemetery

This is a small park along a tidal stream with primarily baldcypresses. They are growing nicely, perhaps 60-80 years old.

This preserve has plenty of older loblolly pines and black gums mixed with much younger forest. I relied on some placards to identify several species.

Pinus taeda loblolly pine 88.3' 94.3' 83.7' 85.5' cbh 9'10"

Magnolia grandiflora S. magnolia ~50'

Persea borbonia red bay 30+'

Cliftonia monophylla titi ~17'

Liquidambar styraciflua sweetgum 96' 102'

Taxodium ascendens pondcypress 73' 75' 76.0'

Pinus serotina pond pine 69.7'

Nyssa sylvatica black gum 70' could be biflora but looks like sylvatica
