Am attaching a close up of needles on this tree. The answer was helpful. If it’s the African fern pine the 2 large ones are very close together. I walked around the area where they are and there are a couple more small ones that do not look as good as these 2. Not sure if you are local but these are in Beavercreek OH. There is a newer subdivision bordering I675. There is a deep retention area in middle of 2 plants perhaps 2 acres. Runoff collects here from the plats, a creek and I675 via culverts. Ducks, cranes etc. inhabit area also.
The reason for explanation is that it is perhaps more protected here and a bit warmer than I’d they were out in open country. I loved them and had not seen any like them before and wondered where to get one for my yard! Looking inside T trunk and how branches come out from trunk it looks very much like a long needle pine I have. Thanks

Not African fern pine. You're right it looks like bald cypress. I'm not sure, And no I'm not local but a California arborist.
