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.

It's Easy to Plant your Leyland Cypress

Specific Directions for Leyland Cypress
Place your Leyland Cypress Tree in a Southward facing area of your yard to make sure that your tree will receive more sunlight. Your Leyland Cypress tree can tolerate shade, but will prefer to be in full sunlight.

While Leyland Cypress Trees prefer acidic or Alkaline soil, your Leyland Cypress Tree will adapt to your natural soil, even if it is sandy or heavy in clay. Just be sure that your soil is well draining.

Leyland Cypress Trees enjoy moist soil, that isn't soggy or over saturated. Your tree will need about an inch of water of every week during the growing season. Keeping your Leyland Cypress Tree's soil moist down to 18 inches will give you the best results.

Leyland Cypress Trees don't require any fertilizer, unless you already know that your lawn needs extra nutrients. Giving your Leyland Cypress Tree some general fertilizer of formula 10-10-10 once every Spring will give it a boost.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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.

So far so good.
I recently planted 15 Leyland Cypress trees from another source. I lost 6 out of 15 so far in growing zone 10 Florida.
I purchased 1 Leyland Cypress from Fast-Growing Trees to see if there is a quality difference. It seems that there is, as this tree appears to be doing quite well and looks very healthy. I would trust this source, I have purchased 3 different varieties of trees and Bamboo and so far I am very satisfied.

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

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,

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

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

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

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.

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!!

Review Title
Since they are in the ground for only a few months it's hard to tell how they are doing and it's winter now. But they look good nice and green. The only complaint I have is the way they were shipped in long cardboard boxes . The fed ex guy was just throwing them off the truck until I stopped him and gently took them off the truck fortunately only one was a little damaged on its bark it seems to be doing ok though .

I give 5 stars for the tree I received and service from FGT. However, I have some concerns about the Leyland Cypress. They are now being attacked by a fungus in my daughters and neighboring yards in Virginia. Of three trees I purchased here in Texas I have lost one, replaced with the FGT tree and may have lost another of the original trees. Completely brown. Hoping it recovers with regular irrigation. Just see how the trees are doing in your areas. The nursery I bought the original trees from here in Texas is no longer selling them because of the fungus. Otherwise, I love these trees and the service from FGT

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.

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!

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!

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

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.

I had 22 Leyland Cypress around my back yard as a privacy fence they were beautiful and grew like all get out, everyone commented about their beauty. My cousin owns a nursery here in NC and he told me to start saving my money because I would need it in 15 or 16 years and sure enough at the 16 year mark my cypress started dying and falling they damaged my roof and knocked down my fence. I spent a fortune to have them removed. They were pretty and they did grow fast but they do have a few problems . They also put out roots that travel a long way so I would not plant these trees any where near a house foundation. I did not buy my trees from your company , I just feel like people should be warned about these trees.

From a distance, looking like sturdy "Christmas" trees, Leylands are a feathery and graceful and very welcome substitute in the subtropics. They grow and fan out pretty fast after the first several months. I am so proud of them too, as they really stand out down here--- where you mostly see palm trees, fruit-bearing flora and flowering shrubs.

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

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful tree BUT
I live in zone 6 and bought 41 Leyland Cypress last year due to the exceptionally cold and long winter none of them made it from severe winter burn. They were well package and beautiful when I first got them we just had too hard of a winter. Fast Growing trees stood by the 1 yr guarantee. I purchased some shrubs for my new house. am replacing the cypress with thuja-green giants.

Leyland Cypress
Order two trees, after two weeks or so, it was clear that one was not going to live. It seemed to originally have had a smaller root ball than the other and maybe that is why it did not take. I called the company and was happily surprised that they sent out a new tree immediately at no cost. The new tree is doing well. Both trees are in full sun and we water regularly. The soil condition is not the best, but they are doing very well. Growing slowly right now, but maintaining a good color with no brown or yellow leaves. Would buy from them again if we need anything else as the customer service and quality are excellent.

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

Leland Cypress trees
I had 16 trees shipped from the SE coast clear across the country to Western Washington (Fed Ex)! All of them Arrived in very good condition. These trees were two to four feet tall. They were planted in April and continue to do very well (late July) despite an unusually hot and dry spring and summer up here in the Pacific Northwest! I am very happy with the overall experience so far and look forward to the near future when these trees provide the screen between our yard and our neighbors!

Beautiful trees for a screen when young but very susceptible to disease. We live in zone 7 and planted several 6 foot tall leylands about 10 years ago in full sun. Within about five years they had almost doubled in size and now are 25 feet tall. However, when they were about eight yeas old the needles started turning brown in spots and branches started dying, which a local arborist said is not unusual for leylands - you're lucky if you get 10-12 years out of them before they get so ragged they're no good as a screen. For this zone, local arborists recommend thuja Green Giants which grow as tall and as fast as leylands and are much more disease resistant.

Some leaves on my cypress have turned brown after extremely cold winter. Are the brown leaves capable of coming back and turning green again?
Jay S on May 8, 2015
Best Answer: If less than 1/3 of the tree died you can cut the dead branches back to where it is green and they should come back. If there is no disease, it is probably water causing the die back, especially in winter; windy conditions will aggravate the problem, too. Water them once or twice a month in winter if you have no rain, and mulch out past the drop line of the branches to also help hold moisture at the roots.

Does this tree grow in a container in zone 4?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2014
Best Answer: Zone 4 is outside of the recommended growing zone for Leyland Cypress Trees. They require a lot of sunlight and aren't as cold hardy as the Emerald Green Thuja, or Thuja Green Giant. They also grow too big to be a good container subject, maturing to 40-60 feet tall and as much as 20-30 feet wide when grown in the ground. I would recommend looking into a cold hardier plant that will grow in the ground fro you area, or else a much smaller, slower growing evergreen to grow in a container.

How do they do in high winds? We get quite a bit of wind in the fall and spring. Consistent 10-15 MPH and gusts up to 25.
Aeklund on Feb 1, 2015
Best Answer: These trees have a relatively small root system when they are young, so will need to be staked for the first year or two; however, when they are established, if they are grown close together in a windrow on 6 to 8 foot centers, they make an excellent wind barrier and visual screen

How wide apart should they be planted to form good screen if they get only morning sun?
charlie on Oct 14, 2014
Best Answer: To form a dense privacy screen quickly, you can plant your Leylands 6 feet apart. In five years, they should be starting to have all the space between trees filled in. They do mature to a large tree, 40-60 feet tall and 20-30 feet wide eventually, so if you don't mind waiting, you can plant them 8 or 10 feet apart. You should know that these trees like a lot of sun, so if they get less than 6-8 hours of sun a day, they will grow more slowly and their branches will be less dense.

How far away from a fence do i need to plant the Leyland Cypress?
Chris W on Jul 20, 2014
Best Answer: In 5-7 years, these trees will be 8-12 feet wide, and they keep growing to mature at 10-12 years to 20 or even 30 feet wide, depending on growing conditions. If you don't mind the branches going over the fence, you can plant your trees 6-8 feet from the fence. If you want the trees to not encroach on the fence in 10 years, you should plant them 12-15 feet from the fence.

Will they grow in clay soil?
Harvey G on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: Leyland Cypress is tolerant of a wide range of soils including clay, but especially when they are young, they need good drainage. If you have hard clay, dig the hole a foot or two deeper and 2-3 feet wider than the root ball and back-fill the hole with the clay you dug out, well mixed with organic matter (1/2 clay, 1/2 composted leaves). Be sure to plant the Leyland with the soil surface in the pot at the same level as the soil surface in the ground, and cover the planting area with 4 inches of mulch, keeping the area around the trunk free of mulch for about 4-6 inches. The mulch will deter weeds which compete for water and nutrients with the shallow roots of the Leyland, and also help conserve moisture.

I live in Iowa, and the leyland cypress came up as trees for Iowa. Yet the recommendation on the actual leyland cypress page says zone 6-10.

Or perhaps they came up as being recommended for Iowa when I purchased them before and then I did not look at the zone?

Can i plant the cypress in a planter box which is 5 feet and 16 inches wide x 3 feet high and if yes how many?
Danny J on Jul 16, 2015
Best Answer: This tree grows to 40-60 feet high and 25 feet wide when it is mature; even at 5 years, it will be 20-25 feet tall and 10 feet wide. It will grow smaller in a container, of course, but just one will fill your large container in just a couple of years and out grow it in 5-6 years. There are many evergreens that grow smaller that would look good in your large planter box that you could also consider - Thuja Emerald Green, Juniper Wichita Blue, or Little Gem Magnolia. You could also plant maybe 3 Sky Pencil Hollies and fill in with perennials or annuals to trail over the edge.

Didn't really realize the trees would grow soooooo tall so quickly. Would like to trim but not sure how to keep their shape but really want to shorten them. How do I do this?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2014
Best Answer: If you want to keep the pointed, pyramidal shape, you should start pruning when the tree is young. You will need to maintain a main stem as leader at the top, or your trees will get a flat top. If the hedge is already more than the height you want it, you can cut the top back to slightly below where you want the height to be, and let it fill in, but you will have a flat-topped hedge. You will have to keep cutting it back to keep it this height, and to keep it neat looking. You can shear the top and sides 2-3 times a year during the growing season (spring through late summer) to for a formal look, but you will need to be sure you keep the bottom wider than the top (an A shape) so the bottom branches have sunlight. Otherwise, the trees' bottoms will be leggy and rather bare looking.

When is best time to plant??
Sherry D on Sep 27, 2014
Best Answer: These trees can be planted anytime the ground is not frozen! If you plant in summer, you will have to pay special attention to watering. Also, if you live in the more northern part of the range for Leyland Cypress (zone 6), you should probably avoid planting after September until late winter/early spring, as this plant's relatively small root system has a hard time withstanding a windy, dry winter.

Is it okay to plant in fall?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2014
Best Answer: Early Fall - they need time to root. September should be good. I am in Ohio and the weather gurus are predicting another rough one similar to last year.
I used a mix of vermiculite, sweet peat, peat moss and fresh top soil mixed in with the dirt from the hole making the hole a little bigger than recommended to give them every opportunity. I would also recommend doing a burlap screen in a windy area for winter. Mine are thriving and have shown growth.

What season should they be trimmed in height?
Joann B on Jul 10, 2014
Best Answer: Cutting back the top to establish height can be done in early spring, and you can reduce the height up to 1/3, but once you top your trees, you are committed to keeping them pruned if you want an attractive hedge. If you are shearing for a formal look, the top and sides can be trimmed up to three times in the growing season. Be sure the bottom is wider than the top so sunlight reaches the lower limbs and they produce foliage, rather than becoming brown and bare. These trees grow to be about 40-60 feet tall when they are mature, so if you are wanting a hedge of 12 feet or so tall, you should perhaps look at a tree that naturally grows smaller, such as the Emerald Green Thuja.

Mark R on Jul 26, 2015
Best Answer: Leyland Cypresses mature to a height of 40-60 feet and 25 feet wide, though they will grow smaller if planted close together in a hedge. Its roots are shallow, and will spread further than the foliage does. To make sure the roots stay clear of your pool, you should plant them 20 feet from your pool.

Can they be trimmed to stay about 7 feet in height?
ROLAND C on Jun 27, 2015
Best Answer: These trees grow to 40-60 feet when left on their own, so a 7-foot hedge is a bit of a stretch. You might look at the Emerald Green Thuja (matures to 8-12 feet, but can be kept trimmed to 7 feet)) as an alternative, or the Goldcrest Cypress (matures 6-8 feet) which will give a bright accent in your yard and require no pruning to not exceed the 7-foot height you want.

My leland cypress has branches that are turning a golden brown. What could be the problem? I have sprayed them with Seven early in the spring but this occurred before that. I thought perhaps the extemely cold weather was a factor but they are continuing to do this.
Sharon D on Jun 6, 2015
Best Answer: Do you have gophers chomping on the roots? Are all your trees turning brown or just some? Have you checked with your local nursery to determine if they have a disease?

I find this cypress to be extremely drought tolerant. I live in California and my trees are a deep green with very little water. Might you be watering them too much? Try cutting back and see if the browning stops. Hope this helps.

What about animals---cows, deer?
Nancy O on Feb 10, 2015
Best Answer: Though the Leyland Cypress is not at the top of the deer menu, they will eat it when they get hungry, especially in winter. You might want to protect young trees with some wire fencing until they get old enough to withstand some deer browsing. There is some evidence that Cupressocyparis leylandii will cause pregnant cows to abort if they eat significant amounts, so I would not plant it where you are raising cows.

At what point of the tree do you measure the distance between leyland cypress trees?
Joseph S on Jan 17, 2015
Best Answer: You measure from the center of the base of the trunk. If your trees are placed at 6 foot centers, that means that there are 6 feet between one tree's trunk to the next.

how easy are they to plant ?
Tom H on Jan 6, 2015
Best Answer: Planting a Leyland Cypress is pretty standard, and not very complicated or difficult. Dig a hole 2-3 times as wide as the root ball and as deep as the soil in the container. Break up the surface of your hole with your shovel, place the root ball in the center of the hole, and backfill with the soil. Be sure the top of the soil in the pot is level with the surface of the soil in the hole. If you have hard clay, you probably should make the hole bigger and deeper and add composted leave or sandy loam to the soil you fill the hole with. Form a rim with the excess soil at the edge of the hole so water stays at the root area for the first season. Apply a 4 inch mulch, leaving the area right around the trunk clear for 6 inches. Water in well.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.
