Thank you for your question. Better for what, is an angle on the answer. Although Florida Extension lists cypress mulch among those available (http://gardeningsolutions.ifas.ufl.edu/care/planting/mulch.html), the over-harvesting of cypress to create the mulch is an environmental concern discussed here: https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/should_i_boycott_cypress_mulch So, you can use it, but mulch from fast growing, non-threatened trees is the more responsible option. Hope this is helpful!
