Theriot Farm to Grow More Than 1,000 Cypress Trees

By Halle Parker, Houma Today

THERIOT — Two years ago, Charles Gaiennie and his wife returned to family land in Theriot to start their own farm. Through a partnership with the New Orleans-based nonprofit Common Ground Relief Wetlands, they will use a portion of their 70 acres at Lytle Farms as a tree nursery to grow more than 1,000 bald cypresses that will be used to armor Terrebonne Parish's levees from erosion.
