Cypress is also known as bald cypress, southern cypress, red cypress, yellow cypress, and white cypress. Commercially, the terms tidewater red cypress, Gulf cypress, red cypress (coast type), and yellow cypress (inland type) are frequently used. Our vintage hardwoods are primarily reclaimed from barns and tobacco warehouses in the Midwest and Northeast regions of the United States.About half of the Cypress lumber comes from the Southern States and about a fourth from the South Atlantic States. Sapwood of bald cypress is narrow and nearly white.

The color of heartwood varies widely, ranging from light yellowish brown to dark brownish red, brown, or chocolate. The heartwood of old growth bald Cypress is one of the most decay resistant of U.S. species, but second growth wood is only moderately resistant to decay.

The wood of certain Bald Cypress trees frequently contains pockets or localized areas that have been attacked by a fungus. Such wood is known as Pecky Cypress. The decay caused by this fungus is stopped when the wood is cut into lumber and dried. Pecky Cypress is therefore durable and useful where water tightness is unnecessary, texture is valued, or a rustic effect is desired.  

We stock Cypress timbers up to 16” x 16” and in lengths up to 32’. We can cut and/or plane it to any dimension you desire in our milling facility. Pecky Cypress is occasionally found in timbers but it is primarily found in our smaller dimensional sizes. Cypress offers more color and character than Pine, Fir, or Western Red Cedar. The versatility of Cypress allows you to use it as exposed beams, wainscoting, ceilings, and even flooring.
