Mangrove trees (Rhizophora mangle, Avicennia germinans, etc.) do not grow
in the northern United States because they are of tropical origin and lack
cold hardiness.  However, quite a few trees native to the southern U.S.
are cold hardy far north of their natural range, such as bald cypress
(Taxodium distichum), which is native only as far north as central
Maryland and southern Illinois but is hardy in New York and southern
Canada.
