Why choose Cypress?
- Its heartwood is resistant to termites
- Harvested according to AFS standards from sustainably managed forests
- Has a 40 year life expectancy for above ground use and 25 year life expectancy for in ground
Cypress features a creamy-white band of sapwood that hides the heartwood, which ranges in colour from light yellow through to orange and light brown (with occasional dark brown streaks).
The grain is generally straight with a fine and even texture. The presence of tight grain knots is also a distinctive feature.
