Physical and Environmental Profile of Cypress
Bald cypress is reported to be rather widespread, abundant, and secure globally, although it may be quite rare in parts of its range, especially at the periphery (Source - The Nature Conservancy - Rank of relative endangerment based primarily on the number of occurrences of the species globally).
Bald cypress is reported to be distributed in Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, New York, Oklahoma, Illinois, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Indiana. The tree prefers very wet, swampy soils of riverbanks and floodplain lakes that are sometimes submerged. It is often found in pure stands, but may also grow alongside hardwoods.
It is currently unknown whether some material from this species is available from sustainably managed, salvaged, recycled, or other environmentally responsible sources.
This large, aquatic, and deciduous tree is reported to mature to a height of about 100 to 120 feet (30 to 37 m), with a trunk diameter of 36 to 60 inches (90 to 150 cm). Bald cypress trees are reported to be well-known ornamentals, but are also commercially valuable.
Certified Sustainable Cypress
Bald Cypress, because of its growing requirements, is harvested from the land of many small land owners. The cost of being certified currently makes it prohibitive for small operators. We are in contact with SmartWood.org and the Forest Stewardship Council to find/create certified cypress harvesters.
