Taxodium mucronatum, common name Montezuma bald cypress, is a species of Taxodium that is native to Mexico and Guatemala. The Nahuatl (Aztec or Mexicano language) name for the tree, āhuēhuētl, means "upright drum in water" or "old man of the water." It is a large evergreen or semi-evergreen tree growing to 40 m tall and with a trunk of 1–3 m diameter. The leaves are spirally arranged but twisted at the base to lie in two horizontal ranks, 1–2 cm long and 1–2 mm broad. The cones are ovoid, 1.5–2.5 cm long and 1–2 cm broad.Unlike bald cypress and pond cypress, Montezuma cypress rarely produces cypress knees from the roots. Trees from the Mexican highlands achieve a notable stoutness.
