DescriptionWith the expansion of markets for cypress mulch, continued interest in cypress for use in construction and furniture manufacturing, and its prominence as a component of the South’s forested wetlands, it is important to understand the status of this uniquely southern resource. This factsheet is intended to provide a brief look at the geographic occurrence and extent of cypress, recent changes in its volume, levels of production, and general ownership characteristics (public vs. private) in each Southern State and the region as a whole. These attributes are useful indicators of future sustainability of this species.
