I’ve had a bald cypress for just under a year. It came bare of leaves and grew very vigorously in the spring summer and fall. It seems to have gone dormant but is not showing any signs of dropping its leaves. I’ve given some a gentle tug and they’re still firmly attached. I live in the city of SF where the winter is very mild. Do I need to assist this tree with dropping its leaves as it would in its natural habitat or just let it do what it wants in this mild climate?
Thanks for the help.
