Salt cedar is a deciduous shrub/small tree that grows most successfully along riparian zones , that is, along streams and/or lake edges. Its roots extend deeply into the soil and depend on ground water for water supply. Saltcedar's high water consumption further stresses native vegetation by lowering ground water levels and can also dry up springs and marshy areas.

Tambourissa quadrifida is a striking tree, with cauliflorus flowers coming straight out of the trunk. The male flowers look like small red starfish covered in white paint marks. The female flowers look like a small wooden bell that takes the form of a small pot when it turns into a fruit. The fruit gives the tree its common name of "monkey's chamber pot" (pot sam zacot). When ripe the walls of the chamber pot open disgorging black seeds covered in bright orange flesh.

Taxodium distichum grows in full sunlight to partial shade. This species grows best in wet or well-drained soil but can tolerate dry soil. It is moderately able to grow in aerosols of salt water. Trunks are buttressed (flared or fluted) at the base, and when growing in water, often develop distinctive, knobby root growths ("knees") which protrude above the water surface around the tree.
