Old growth cypress lumber is highly sought after, but most people are improperly informed about what they are buying. There is no Old Growth Cypress being harvested to the best of my knowledge. In as much as it was cut and or milled decades ago.
The criteria for detecting old
is the number of rings per inch in the tree or log. Normally the only way this can be seen is if the tree has been cut down. The greater the number of rings per inch the older the tree. The conditions that causes this is the density of the forest a trees grows in, and of course the varying climate. The common theory is that the more rings the stronger the material.
Old growth cypress wood is very much available without cutting down anything if you are willing to get out and search for it, which is what we do.
The most remarkable thing about cypress hunting is that it's one of very few types of wood, anyone will spend time or money looking for outside of a lumber yard. Most other types of wood that could be called old growth simply don't exist because unlike cypress wood they will not survive the elements or insects. Old Growth Cypress buildings and other structures have been standing in this country for hundreds of years.
