Yes Cypress will work fine. Typically Cypress is the more difficult to find and more sought after as a rot resistant wood.

I am in southeast ohio and can not locate black locust. I am planning on building my Humanure compost bins this summer. I can get cypress for relatively cheap. Can anyone tell me if cypress is rot resistant, and if it would leach anything bad into the compost pile (has anyone used cypress?) OR - alternately, if anyone knows where i can get black locust in southeast ohio I would be very interested to find out where.
