Today my made of wood photo is a cypress plank from the old cypress trees growing on the property.
Cypress wood is very durable, stable, and water- and rot-resistant, making it suitable for building and heavy construction. Other uses where its properties make it a good choice include caskets, piers, bridges, boats, siding, sashes, doors, stadium seats, posts, cooperage and railroad ties.
Cypress Trees :
Louisiana’s state tree is the bald cypress. Its scientific name is Taxodium distichum. Bald cypress is one of our most distinguished native trees and is widely found in Louisiana landscapes.
