We have sent out tidewater cypress lumber for beams, decks, floors, paneling, siding, outdoor structures, fences and whatever you have in mind! Everything is custom milled to your specs. Flat grain, vertical grain, #2, select or better.. let us know what you need! Small quantities to truckloads are fine!
Our tidewater cypress is swamp grown and culled, not commercially grown. Ring count tends to be tight , and the lumber is a beautiful golden color when finished. It grays if left outside to age.
Why use cypress? It is similar to cedar or redwood in its ability to withstand bugs and weathering, and is long lasting and strong. Many use it for timber framing of homes and barns.
We have also sold small quantities for pens, frames, and small home projects.

Sinker Cypress is very special.. dredged from river and swamp bottoms by trained, skilled divers from where it may have been since the mid 1800's when logs were floated downriver to mills. Sinker cypress is darker and more tightly grained than tidewater cypress.. the color comes from the minerals it has absorbed form the river bottom where it sunk..and may vary from green to reds, and it may sparkle! The tight grain is due to shinkage, and the fact it is original old growth from America's primeval forests.

Pecky Cypress is the stuff the oldtimers used to throw away or use to build their barns.. today it is a sought after specialty lumber we mill from both sinker and tidewater logs..when we find it!
Whether it is lightly "pecked" with a few small hollows or heavy "peck", it will make an impresion! The "peck" comes from a type of fungus that eats out portions of a log's interior.. you never know whether a tree has it until its cut, and only milling can show how much peck is in any given board. It is generally used for paneling and furniture.
