Does anyone know if the big box stores in the south sell bald cypress?

Don’t usually see it in the Big Box stores here in the south. However, most of the regular lumber yards either carry it or can order it depending on the qty.

The only cypress I’ve seen in the big box marts down here are fence pickets. They make great raised flowerbed boxes but that’s about it.

Have your say...
