driftwood gainesville area


Is anyone selling or trying to get rid of some driftwood in north florida? I'm in the process of looking for some in local lakes but it doesn't seem to promising. If anyone knows of a good cheap place or person that is selling some please let me know!

I really would like to know where to go collect in the area. I live in port richey and think it would be fun to go out and find some

Head to the town of Waldo, right off the road, Tom 's Driftwood.
A few acres of driftwood.

I love Waldo. Just be warned. The major source of income for the town is speeding fines. Just saying.

haha yeah I've seen the speed trap... So where is Tom's driftwood exactly? I've only driven through on my way to Jacksonville so I don't really know the town very well.

I'm not sure if it's Tom's but there's one right on 301. Almost across the street from Wendys. I've driven by it MANY times commuting to Williston from Jax to see the family. It appeared to be more sawn cypress than anything to me but who knows never stopped to look. Yes, the signs that say speed strictly enforced mean STRICTLY ENFORCED lol

Just looked up the name for that place I mentioned. It is named Tom's,

Tom's Cypress
Address: 15455 U.S. 301, Waldo, FL 32694

you can go to the Flying Fish here in High Springs, Andy has a lot of driftwood from $1-$3 for good sizes and then of course much bigger more expensive ones
