RESERVE — As a company worked through the swamp area, several trees had to be cut down in the process.

Stephen Guidry President of the Godchaux-Reserve House Historical Society, asked the company to give his group the opportunity to collect the Cypress trees that were cut down.

Guidry and friends removed the Cypress from the former Godchaux swamp lands and milled the fresh Cypress lumber for the restoration.
