The bald cypress stands by a fish-shaped pond and white footbridge at the William Paca House and Garden. A 65-foot specimen with refreshing shade, it looks as old-fashioned as its surroundings in Annapolis - except for the slender copper wire neatly climbing its trunk. The new lightning protection system adorning the 30-year-old tree was a gift last week to the nonprofit Historic Annapolis Foundation, which runs the garden. Installed by employees of the Care of Trees company, it's potentially a lifesaver for a tree that is vulnerable, visible and hard to replace.

One of the nice things about conifers is that they don't dump leaves all over your yard in the fall. With the exception of larches, the bald cypress and dawn redwood, conifers -- whose name means cone-bearing -- are evergreen.Their branches discreetly lose their leaves -- called needles or scales, depending on the type -- throughout the year but are never bare. After the deciduous trees shed their leaves in the fall, the conifers stand out in full dress.Conifers are often the backbone of gardens as well as forests throughout the world.

JUPITER, Fla. - The orange coloring in David Newhan's uniform has a tendency to spread beyond the letters. It can run from his upper chest to his knees, the bright dirt clinging to him like a scared child. It isn't enough that the Orioles keep shifting him from one position to the next. It looks as though they're also using him to drag the infield. Newhan is prepared to do anything these days, his duties always expanding. He started in right field on Tuesday, but ended the game at first base.

Q. I have a row of young Leyland cypress that was hammered by the January ice storm. I pruned out the broken branches, but most of the trees are either leaning over or have a trunk that is bent over. Will they grow up straight and healthy?A. They should be fine as long as the roots and crown were not damaged. Pull the leaners up into a vertical position and gently tamp soil down around the base. If they continue to lean, stake and tie them for support.The bent trunks should slowly straighten out, but some may develop a permanent crook.

The revitalization of the U.S. 1 corridor will get another boost with the construction of a 44-unit subdivision in Elkridge. Reinvigorating the economic foundation of the 13-mile strip in Howard County is a high priority of politicians and business leaders. That effort will take years to complete, but several projects are under way or planned. The latest is Cypress Springs, which will include building 43 single-family detached houses and renovating the historic Old Grace Church rectory.

My back yard is about 40 feet wide and open on two sides. I would like some privacy. Can you suggest a tall, narrow evergreen hedge plant? Leyland cypress (X Cupressocyparis leylandii) is the plant most often used for this purpose. It eventually grows 60-70 feet high and 10-15 feetwide. It is adaptable and works in many situations, but it does require full sun. Another plant that might work is an arborvitae called 'Green Giant' (Thuja plicata 'Green Giant'). There is beautiful hedge of this plant at the National Arboretum in Washington.

I would like to plant several dawn redwood or bald cypress trees this fall. They seem very similar to me. What is the difference between the plants? Both are deciduous trees with a soft ferny texture and upright pyramidal habit that give them the appearance of an evergreen tree. However, they turn orange to golden brown in the fall and drop all of their leaves like other deciduous trees. From a distance, I have trouble distinguishing them. The best way to tell them apart is to look at the arrangement of the leaves.
