Leyland Cypress

America's Most Planted Privacy Tree!

Height:

The heights we list are the actual size of your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.

We do not prune evergreen trees for any reason. Evergreen trees typically hold their shape for the life of the tree and do not require any pruning or shearing.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker privacy the first full growing season.

• Grows up to 3-5 ft. per year! 
• Feathery soft texture 
• Drought Tolerant 

Leylands are the most popular privacy tree in the U.S.A. They grow very fast and thicken to create a solid wall. 

It's feathery texture is soft to the touch. Stays green all year-round, giving you complete privacy. 

Grows rapidly... up to 3-5 ft. per year! Easily pruned to your desired height and shape. 

Even without trimming, your Leyland Cypress trees will grow in a uniform, symmetrical shape that gives you a dense, living wall. 

Fast growers and adaptable to a variety of soils and conditions, even sandy and clay. 

Space your Leylands 6 ft. apart for a privacy hedge or further apart for a spacious property border. 

Your trees arrive in their own containers with all their roots intact. We don't send Leylands out bare-root or "balled & burlapped". This process is cheaper for the grower, but can leave over 90% of the roots in the ground... taking the Leyland up to a year to recover... stunting their growth and making them more susceptible to health problems. 

Your Leylands are grown in pots and arrive with a well developed root system.. 

You get hardy, vibrant trees, that will give you the fastest growth possible. And for quickest privacy, you can still order from our limited supply of taller Leyland Cypress trees.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Leyland Cypress


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Leyland Cypress.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Leyland Cypress gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Leyland Cypress again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I never would have thought to find my trees online, but after the poor service I got at my local nursery I found Fast Growing Trees Nursery, which gave me all the information I needed to get a privacy hedge going. The Leyland Cypress trees I ordered arrived to me in California in great shape and now they are in their happy home. Ill be buying some more plants from this company as spring approaches.

By: T.A.
My trees are doing great. Its about two years and they have doubled in size. Fantastic! Ive passed your name around to friends. Look forward to doing business sometime soon. Thanks! T.A.

By: Kirt in San Diego, CA
I planted these trees as a privacy screen and they are very healthy. I live in San Diego and even with the minimal watering due to drought conditions, my Leyland Cypress trees are completely green and thriving. They are working perfectly for what you said they would do. No complaints.

By: Harlow in Newcastle, WA
I was given an estimate by a local landscaper of $4,000 to plant 9 Leyland Cypresses in my back yard. I shopped with you and needless to say, I saved a LOT of money, even though two of them didnt make the first few months. You replaced them and they all have taken root and are doing well. I may need to buy one more to make sure the whole area is full. Your trees arrived in perfect condition and so well wrapped!! I was very happy.

By: Charlie in Carrollton, TX
Our leyland cypress trees have taken root very well and are flourishing here in Texas, I am very pleased with them. I find them to be particularly attractive in the cool times when they are wet, as they are a lovely shade of blue-green! I have planted them as a sound and site barrier as I reside along a busy street. I havent noticed any detriment about these trees yet.

By: Katherine in Scarsdale, NY
We bought our leylands to provide a privacy barrier and they are doing very well. They could grow a little faster, however. They definitely like a lot of sun and the ones that have no shade are growing the fastest. They seem to be weathering this cold winter okay so far, but we will know more in a few months.

By: Patrick in Durham, NC
Everything has been going well with my group Leyland Cypresses except for the fact that one died within the first month of planting.

By: Dan
Initially they turned brown and I thought that one or two of the three would not make it. But partway through the summer they turned green and then this fall have grown about a foot. They look good now and I expect will grow significantly going forward.

By: Susan in Santa Rosa, CA
My leyland cypress is looking good. A great tree, though it took several seasons to really take off. Dont plant too close together or too close to a fence - after 3 years they have a spread of almost 3 feet in any direction ,6ft across,.

By: Shoe Gal
I ordered 10 trees all but one are growing great.

By: George in Long Island, NY
I had to cut a birch tree that was growing too close to my home, which was damaging my roof. I purchased a leyland cypress to replace it, and I planted it a few feet farther from my house. The tree arrived very well packed and is doing well. I am very happy with its growth. Excellent tree and company.

By: Tim & Trish in Reidville, SC
We used our leylands as a privacy fence. They are doing great and growing fast as we were told. They have survived through our dry summer, and would not hesitate to buy more. Thank you!

By: Raed in Union City, CA
i planted my Leyland Cypress the day after I received them. They look great. A little young, but waiting to see how much they grow this year. Hoping for 2-3 feet. Thank you.

By: Jack
Our leylands look green and healthy in claylike soil. Many other types of plants have not done so well in our area due to changes in temp and due to our non-porous soil conditions but these trees seem to have survived and should continue to grow well.

By: Jack in Templeton, CA
We used the trees for screening and for artful enhancement to our 4 acre home site. That seem to be doing fine although not growing as fast as we had hopes. All in all they are very well adapted to our soil and climate and have survived well when other tree species have not. I would buy them again and probably will again in the spring.

By: Roger in Brownsburg, IN
The Leyland Cypress is a great & hardy tree. I planted them in early spring and the trees did great. Growing about a foot the first year and filled out alot. Most trees dont grow much in their first year but the Leyland Cypresses took right off. I cant wait to see what theyll do this year. I am going to buy more to give me a fast fence row.

By: Terry in Hingham, MA
I purchased these trees as a house warming gift for my friend Rob. He was able to take advantage of the warm late Fall weather and got all 5 trees in the ground in time. They look great.

By: Anna
We use our evergreens for privacy between our home and the neighbors. These leylands are very strong, they have grown two feet in very hard and dry soil. We have not encountered anything that isnt great about our evergreens. I love our California trees!

By: Brian
I purchased approximately 3 dozen leyland cypress trees over a year ago and have been pleased. They are serving as a fine wall barrier and border in my backyard. I have noticed an increase in size already which was one of the reasons for this species selection.

By: Jim in Greensburg, PA
I bought 75 of these leylands to line my property, and to block out my unfriendly, nasty neighbor. The trees are doing great so far and I cannot wait until they create a living wall. When the trees came in, they were very carefully packaged and undamaged.

By: Terry in West Palm Beach, FL
This tree made the trip in great condition and seems happy in our yard. Even the winter chill has not affected it, GREAT PRODUCT. THANK YOU.

By: Dan in NJ
I placed this tree into a dead area that only weeds seem to grow. My object was to start a tree that will grow high enough to fill an empty area, provide privacy, and a decorative touch. It has grown over 18 inches already. it also takes in the sun well so the care for it was minimal.

By: Sharon in Spring Hill, FL
I live in Central FL and planted Leyland Cypress. The soil is mostly sandy and these trees took off - within 4 years they are 18 feet tall and very full.

By: Sue in Forked River, NJ
When my 5 leyland cypress trees were delivered they were about 12 inches high. I planted them between 4-5 feet apart as per the instructions. Two years later they have reached the top of my 6 ft. fence! They are well established and I look forward to when they block out my neighbors as I am using them for a privacy screen. I plan on purchasing more for the other side. I cant wait to see how much faster they grow this spring.

By: Steve in Mississippi
My leyland cypress trees are doing great. Ill order some more.

By: Tony
I purchased 10 Leyland Cypress trees for a screen in my back yard. In a little over a year they have virtually covered the view of the house behind mine and are growing so fast that soon the utility wires that are run on the backs of the property line will not be visible by next year. They are very healthy looking and once established easy to maintain. I am very happy with my tree purchase and would use Fast Growing Trees Nursery again.

By: anonymous
These leylands took quite a while to recover from the shock of planting. They have finally started producing new growth the last two months. They are hardy and have endured the heat and humidity of NW Florida.

By: John
Came in well packed and healthy. They were planted exactly as directed, but didnt grow at the rate that I expected.

By: Dave in Longview, WA
My wife and i ordered 11 leyland cypress trees for privacy in our back yard . when they arrived they were packaged carefully and looked very healthy. we planted within 2 days and now one year later they have doubled in size and 3 of them are now 6 feet tall, not bad when you consider they were 2.5 feet tall when they arrived.

By: Katherine
They seem to be doing quite well however havent grown very much, I was hoping for more filling in and more height. We watered them during any dry spells and they get a fair amount of sun. The good news is that they appear pretty healthy.

By: Terry
Trees are doing Great! Growing like weeds. I just love them.

By: Kathy
We have bought many Leland Cypress trees and love them.  They are hardy, fast growing and weather tolerant.  We are on the beach in LI, NY. 

By: Sean
We bought 26 Leyland Cypress and once they are established fully it will look great. Only thing I am starting to worry about is a couple of them are turning dark almost black around the stems. They have only been in the ground for maybe 2 weeks now and I am just a worry bug. Do they need more water? Less water? I live in Texas so its always hot here and my plants are in sunlight almost all day long. Help? Other than that I love the trees!

By: Ewing Carter III
I purchased 89 baby lelands 12 yrs. ago as a "L" shaped privacy fence between 2 neighbors. I have a corner lot. I mistakenly had a yard guy plant the trees 4 ft apart rather than 6 ft. Now I'm paying for it! No diseases on the trees, however the branches are growing into one another and the soil is being drained of necessary nutrients to support all these trees. I live in Greensboro, NC northeast where the water and soil is "hard." Need to find a reasonably priced tree firm to cut down about 12 of these trees.

By: Teri Adams
We received our Leyland Cypress trees this week and are very please with the condition they are in. The came healthy with little or no damage to them. We wouldn't have a problem ordering from this company again. In fact, we are going to order a couple more Cypress and fruit trees.

By: Christina Millhauser
Fast delivery, every plant that arrived was healthy, disease free, and grew so fast it was incredible. Love Fast Growing Trees! Wonderul to do business with.

By: Glen
Trees arrived and look amazing. Love that they are young but pretty filled-out already. Definitely not a skinny tree/big pot scenario. Shipping was quick and packaged very nicely. Thank you.

By: Kev
Great product I've had it 6 months now and growing great.

By: Nell Miller
I bought 6 of the pretties Leyland Cypress trees I think I have ever seen about 6 years ago and they grew to be exactly what I wanted. I think at this time they are about 15 feet tall looking beautiful. Then 1 day darkness fell on my trees, I noticed several cocoon looking things attaching to the needles and then there were more and more . I found something to treat them but by then the trees were dying. 1 by 1 I have lost all but 1 and it has a few spots on it but who knows whether it will live or not. These deadly things were found to be Bag Worms. A word to the wise if you see any they spread like fire and are deadly. Hopefully you will find something that will kill them faster than I did because I loved my trees and were proud of them and now I am afraid to plant any that Bag Worms Attack because I don't want this to happen again. I plan to try another kind this time the Thuja Green Giant it is said that Bag Worms don't attack these. BEWARE OF BAGWORMS !!! BE LIKE A SCOUT AND BE PREPARED!!!!!dont get hurt.

By: Howard Reife
I purchase 3 Leyland cypresses and even with the drought and extreme temperatures in the midwest the past year, the trees are looking wonderful.

By: Mellonne Gillman
I planted 6 cypress a year ago last spring, followed by 6 last fall. I am so pleased with them that I just planted 12 more. They are so healthy and are growing at top speed. My son was so impressed that he ordered 18 for his fenceline. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

By: Duey
I have to admit -- some of the reviews made me a little nervous to order trees from FGT. I guess it only takes one "unsatisfied" customer.

I am VERY HAPPY to give Fast Growing Trees an OUTSTANDING review. My trees arrived in 6 days -- they were absolutely perfect in every way. Well packaged and a very high quality product. I couldn't get trees where I live from a farm or store as good! I ordered 12 trees, they came in 6 boxes. They are healthy, beautiful and honestly, way above and beyond what I expected. Communication with the company was excellent and if you are thinking about using them! Don't hesitate -- you will not be disappointed!! Many thanks for running a quality on-line tree service!! We'll be back and we are sending all of our friends too!!


By: Catherine
I planted 10 Leylands 2 and a half years ago lining my driveway to give me privacy from neighbors. I trim them on the sides and top when permitted and they are doing great. They survived the big Hurricane Sandy very well even though I lost 3 other trees from the 70 mile an your winds which fell in their direction. I have previously planted single Leylands in the front of my house which faces north and was told they would never grow tall due to lack of sun exposure. Well, these leylands had to be trimmed back several times already and keep growing past the roof of my house. They are all beautiful and so graceful too. They are my favorite and are very healthy. I will sprinkle some Holly Tone on the ground around all my ever greens very shortly before the heat sets in. So happy with these evergreens!!!

By: Pierrette
I bought a Leyland cypress during Fall 2011 .... I was a bit disappointed at first , although the tree was very healthy, it looked more like a stick than a tree...two years later the cypress is majestic looking, almost doubled its size. I am going to order new ones!

By: barry gardner
the trees were badly trimmed, too much sides removed prior to shipping.they have taken a long time to settle in,but seem to be growing now,next year will tell.

By: Daniel in Venice, FL
This is just as described feather soft evergreen. I planted in Sept 2012 and it has grown 1 ft all ready arrived as all 9 other trees in great condition and within 3 days of shipping.

By: Linda
I needed trees for a barrier in our new backyard in FL. Didn't have any idea what would grow in this area so I decided to check out information on the internet & came upon Fast Growing Trees. The site was so well organized, I found what I needed within a few key strokes. Ordered 5 Leyland Cypress & when they arrived I was thrilled with everything about them. Hardy, great smelling, fantastic green trees which were packed like nothing I have every seen before. Such care was taken with these gorgeous trees, that I ordered 10 more! They are growing beautifully near our Atlantic coast line. I measure them once a month & on average they have grown 3" to 4" each month. Place an order for whatever you need you will be happy you did.
