Pierce County Georgia mulch

Thank you for your question. Better for what, is an angle on the answer. Although Florida Extension lists cypress mulch among those available (, the over-harvesting of cypress to create the mulch is an environmental concern discussed here: So, you can use it, but mulch from fast growing, non-threatened trees is the more responsible option. Hope this is helpful!
