Solid wood Cypress

Cypress is a great wood specie for use in exterior projects due to the presence of natural enzymes within the wood that make it resistant to decay and insect attack. Native to the southern coastal region of the United States, Cypress has been used for centuries as decking, covered porch flooring, siding, fencing, and outdoor structures. The wood will age to a silvery greyish color if left untreated, or it may be finished to maintain its original coloring.

Pictured here is Wightman Cypress flooring to be installed at the Catskill Forest Association in Arkville, NY.

A good resource for information on Cypress is the Southern Cypress Manufacturers Association.
