Naturally Durable

Cypress trees generate cypressene, a naturally occurring preservative oil that makes cypress heartwood resistant to insects, decay, chemical corrosion and other damaging elements. For this reason, the wood has long been a favorite choice for long-wearing outdoor applications such as fence posts, telephone poles, docks, and railroad ties.

People who work with cypress on a regular basis say the wood’s natural durability is a plus for exterior applications, including fence posts, clapboards, shingles, exterior trim, shutters, window boxes, and landscape design elements. In addition, the versatile, distinctive wood’s inherent beauty can add elegance to any home or office interior.
