Product Overview

The Leyland Cypress is a fast-growing evergreen tree with a pyramidal shape. The tree's dense growth and tall height make it a great choice for creating a border shade that will block unwanted sights and reduce neighborhood noise. Besides its utility, this evergreen is nice to look at with feathery soft, textured leaves. The tree grows 3 ft. to 4 ft. per year and reaches a height of about 60 ft. to 70 ft. and a spread of 15 ft. to 25 ft. The Leyland is drought tolerant and hardy in Zones 6-10. The plant is shipped in a #1 pot with a minimum height of 12 in. The Leyland should be planted in full sun but can tolerate most types of soil, as long as they are well-drained. Once planted, prune for the first few years in order to encourage dense growth.
  • Fast-growing, 3 ft. to 4 ft. per year
  • Great for privacy
  • Drought tolerant
  • Mature height of 60 ft. to 70 ft.
  • Tree height at time of shipping varies based on growing season

Sparse trees
I purchased four and while they were delivered miraculously in good shape they are pathetic looking. Two shoots/stems. They look like twigs. Very disappointed at quality. Will see how quickly they grow

Excellent quality trees
I purchased three trees. They arrived in about a week and came in tip-top condition, even though FedEx delivery drivers cannot read clearly printed cautions on the box like "Do Not Stand on End" and "This End Up." The trees were sufficiently and securely packaged that they were unharmed. I was so pleased, I bought six more!
