Sinker Cypress Lumber comes from old growth cypress logs that were ax cut in the early 1800’s. The logs were lost during transportation and have been submerged in the rivers, bayous, creeks, and swamps of the southern regions of the United States. These logs are now retrieved and used for many historical restorations, timber frame homes and new construction.
Cypress has a very tight fine grain and when it is newly milled, it has a rich golden color. Cypress is naturally resistant to insects, pests and decay due to the natural oil present in the wood and is also very durable making it a great choice for construction use.
Pecky Sinker Cypress
Pecky Sinker Cypress is a unique grade of Sinker Cypress that is caused by a fungus. The fungus only grows while the tree is alive and forms tubular pockets inside the tree. These pockets give the cypress a rustic look that is preferred by interior designer and architects. Pecky Sinker Cypress is quite rare.
Curly Sinker Pine
Curly sinker Pine is another unique grade of sinker pine resulting from an abnormal growth, usually called a burl, that forms on the tree. This burl causes the grain to grow “curly” and gives the lumber a beautiful grain pattern that never fails to catch the eye.
Tidewater cypress is grown only in the deep Southeastern coastal swamps and along the Gulf of Mexico. Tidewater cypress is known for its durability because it creates an oil called cypressene. The oil that the cypress produces acts as natural preservative and makes the Tidewater cypress extremely resilient to rot, insects, and decay. Even when the lumber is left untreated, Tidewater Cypress will last for decades with minimal wear or warping.
Sinker Cypress is a great choice in flooring due its natural resistance to pests, and durability.
