LPCL Treasure Hunt Parish Registry Update
Click on this link to view a May 2018 update of the "Louisiana Purchase Cypress Legacy Treasure Hunt-- A Registry of the Largest/Oldest known Cypress in each Louisiana Parish". Several new Parish discoveries have been added since the previous version, including centuries old cypress in Ascension, Bossier, Claiborne, Iberville, Lafourche, Livingston, Natchitoches, St. John the Baptist, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Tammany, Terrebonne, Webster, and Winn Parishes.
Parishes still awaiting discovery of a 215 + year old cypress ("Alive in 1803") include Acadia, Allen, Beauregard, Caddo, Calcasieu, Caldwell, Cameron, Claiborne, East Feliciana, Franklin, Grant, Jackson, Jefferson Davis, Lafayette, LaSalle, Lincoln, Madison, Ouachita Parish, Pointe Coupe, Red River, Richland, Sabine, St. Bernard, St. Helena, St. James (Blind River Boring pending), St. Martin, St. Mary, Vermillion, Vernon, and West Baton Rouge.
And for those Parishes already having registered cypress listed, we are always happy to hear of trees that may be older than those listed.
