Allred Lake Natural Area

Allred Lake is a small remnant of the once vast network of swamps and bottomland forests that once covered the Mississippi Lowlands of southeast Missouri. Here you can experience a natural scene similar to that found in Louisiana and other gulf coast states. Cypress, water tupelo, overcup oak, and water locust ring the slough called Allred Lake. Mature bald cypress trees are highly tolerant of saturated or flooded soils. The cones and scales float which is the primary method of seed dispersal. The wood of mature cypress is very rot resistant and is desired for fencing, boat planking, piers, siding and shingles.
