Old Growth Tidewater Red Cypress Lumber

Old Growth Tidewater Red Cypress is one of the most durable exterior woods on the market due to the high cypressine content. Exterior uses range from shingles, siding, decking, trim, door and window components. Its interior uses include flooring, paneling, trim, cabinetry and furniture. The rough-cut lumber is slow-cured. First outside for 6 months like they did 100 years ago and then moved to our passive solar kiln for 6 additional months.
