About Us

John Hughes Company

Our Mark

 Native to Eastern North Carolina, the Bald Cypress stands as one of the oldest and unique species of trees in the United States. From the instinctive ability to persevere over time to the intuitive adaption of its roots as “knees", there are several characteristics of the Bald Cypress that resonate with our core objectives and competencies at John Hughes Company. As you get to know us, you may quickly find how reflective these are of our long–standing relationships and demonstrated performance.
