Leyland Cypress 1-2' Tall


The Leyland Cypress Tree, Cupressus x leylandii, is the homeowner's best option for shrubbery to provide privacy around the house. First of all, it grows very tall, which amounts explicitly to be about three to five feet per average year. It is also soft. For the average family, parents do not have to worry about children running into the shrubbery or the trees because they are not prickly or harmful to kids. They form a solid wall to ensure that the family's privacy is completely protected from nosy neighbors and the like. Additionally, the Leyland Cypress Tree is resistant to shortages of water and widespread droughts. The Leyland Cypress trees are always green. Whether it is hot summer, snowy, icy winter, lovely Spring, or Chilly Fall, these Leyland Cypress Trees stay true to their green color. The trees have integrity and are unlikely to fall in harsh weather. These cypress trees are easy to maintain. The family can prune the trees, trim the trees, and even shape them into ornamental figures. Let's say that the homeowner was unwilling to cut or maintain the trees- the Cypress trees would still preserve a sightly and refined look. These trees grow by nature in a uniform, symmetrical shape.

They are sometimes even used in Christmas tree hybrids! Whether the soil is moist or sandy, dry or wet, these trees will grow well. They are very adaptable. This strength applies to all seasons of the year. They grow in Hardiness Zones six through ten. They grow 60 - 70 feet, and the width can be from 15 to 25 feet at maturity. The tree can have height increases up to 24 feet per year. While the trees are versatile, they must get at least six hours of direct sunlight every day.

Evergreen Leyland Cypress Trees Are Great For Privacy


 The tree is not specially catered to helping wildlife refuge, but it provides cover for songbirds and what are referred to as game birds. This tree was named after Leyland, the man who first planted the tree. Scientifically speaking, the Leyland Cypress tree makes cones that are 1/2 - 3/4 inches in diameter and have eight scales per cone. Also, this tree has needles that are a bluish-green type of color and which are also flattened, not too pointy, and in fact, very soft. Were the homeowner to refrain from pruning this tree completely, it would grow naturally in an oval or pyramidal shape, depending on the setting. The Leyland Cypress is a beautiful tree for any homeowner.
