Bald  Cypress, because of its growing requirements, is harvested from the land of many small land owners. The cost of being certified currently makes it prohibitive for small operators.  We are in contact with SmartWood.org and the Forest Stewardship Council to find/create certified cypress harvesters.

In the meantime, buying and using regional or local cypress keeps jobs and craftsmen in alive in our area.

You can help by not buying cypress mulch, a real threat to cypress.
