Take a look at this sign at the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo in Gainesville, Florida. It was crafted by Signs By Tomorrow using five of Goodwin Company’s 1×8 (+/-) sinker cypress boards at 14ft long with one live edge.
Unlike new growth bald cypress, old growth sinker cypress builds up a full heart of cypresene oil, making it resistant to rot. Goodwin’s sinker cypress is specified in many outdoor projects specifically for its rot resistance.
Here are a few more qualities that make Goodwin a staple in sustainable design.
Goodwin has always been passionate about being a good steward of the environment. We know from experience that you can produce an eco-friendly product without compromising on quality. You don’t have to use harsh chemicals, damaging additives, or participate in questionable practices to achieve superior craftsmanship.
Goodwin partners with environmental foresters who call on us when storms cause damage to trees. We remove the threatened and/or damaged trees to ensure continued growth of the ecosystem. Goodwin then mills them into our beautiful antique wood products.
