Top Tree to Increase Property Value

With an elegant, narrow silhouette that grows up to 3 feet each year, the Italian Cypress is one-of-a-kind. Even better? It's tolerant of many climates and gives height to your foundation plantings without taking up a lot of room.

Basically, the Italian Cypress transforms any landscape. Architects use them to cover vertical drain-pipes, soften corners and vertical edges, and even act as elegant property dividers.

Plus, you can plant them in large pots to frame your front entryway or add elegance to your back patio or pool. Because they grow nearly anywhere and adapt to an array of soil types, Italian Cypresses are second to none when it comes to landscape luxuriance. They even resist smog and frost damage!

Unlike most evergreens, the Italian Cypress does not grow in a pyramidal fashion. These popular new trees boast narrow, columnar growth, practically reaching straight up without ever growing very wide. So, when they reach your desired height, you can simply cut the top. It's that effortless.

The dense foliage, soft texture and symmetrical shape of the coveted Italian Cypress is just a click away. And you'll be seeing a lot more of these bold botanicals in higher-end home developments and across budding neighborhoods. The Italian Cypress will sell out, so we recommend ordering while they're still available!

Not doing too good yet. Been waiting for it to straighten up, but not sure if it will. Actually starting to look a bit dry in the needles. Removed from packing and followed instructions to the letter. Hoping it will pick up soon as we really would like to have it in the area we have for it.

Cute little thing!
The Italian Cypress is bee lush and healthy though very tiny. It was about 7” tall when I received it. I had the impression the Italian Cypresses only had one true leader branch (unlike the other pencil tree varieties) but this one has two. I’m going to try to train it into an unique shape!

Great but NOT cold Hardy
Look great, perform well but if you have a cold winter or if you live on the northern edge of the hardiness zones you will likely be devastated when they go brown. Not truly well suited for zones 7 for sure.

Italian cypress trees
I have enjoyed purchasing my trees through Pam's Fast Tree. Every time they have arrived they've been in great health ready to plant and exactly what was expected. I love their website and the 7.00 coupon they sent me for my next purchase. Which is going to be some citrus trees. On my last order they included a free Elliott blueberry shrub that I really appreciated and got that into the ground right next to the Austrian Pines that I purchased and planted earlier.
I planted 12 of them, 6 on two different properties, I love these and get to watch them mature.
These italian cypress trees arrived healthy, and ready to plant and in just a few days. Really happy

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Italian Cypress


Italian Cypress Planting Diretions

Do you want evergreen color in your yard but have a narrow lot space? Italian Cypress trees are perfect for you. These trees are hardy in USDA zones 7-11. Their columnar, spire-like form is unmistakable in the landscape. When used properly, these plants can form a dramatic entrance, serve as “living columns” outside the front door, or grow into a tall, narrow hedge quickly.

Planting Italian Cypress Trees: The number one distinguishing characteristic of Italian Cypress trees is their tall columnar form. They look like living roman columns (hence their name!). If you plant these in the middle of your yard, they’ll look strange. When used the right way, though, they add a dramatic flair to any landscape and garden. The tight, upright growth habit of these trees adds a naturally formal look to any yard and garden where they’re planted.

 

Here are some excellent uses for Italian Cypress Trees:
- Privacy on a narrow lot line. These trees grow to a mature height of 40 feet, but their mature width is only 5 feet, and that is after several years. Plant a row of these trees spaced five to eight feet apart between your house and the house next door for a “skinny screen.”

 

- Highlighting an entrance. Plant one Italian Cypress on each side of your driveway entrance or front home entrance. (These trees are narrow enough to plant right next to the house in foundation planting beds.)

 

- Living fence. Plant a row of Italian Cypress trees as a hedge or fence along your lot line, even if you have plenty of space. This will give you the same privacy as a tall privacy fence, but is less intrusive and harsh to the eye.

Choosing a location: Italian Cypress trees are drought tolerant and like to be on the dry side, so choose a location with full to partial sun in well-drained soil. (At the bottom of a drainage ditch is not a good place for these trees.)
1) Dig a hole that is just as deep but twice as wide as the root ball of the plant.
2) Place the plant in the hole to check the depth. If the soil of the root ball is below the level of the soil of the surrounding ground, pick up the tree and add more soil to the hole.
3) Fill in the hole with the same native soil you removed then water the tree by counting to 20 or by giving it five full watering cans full of water.

Watering: Irrigate your newly-planted tree twice a week for the first month, once a week for the next two months and every two weeks after the first three months. Water your Italian Cypress if you have warm, dry, and windy weather during the winter in your area. It can dry out.

Caring for Italian Cypress Trees: The Italian Cypress is an “easy growing” tree that needs little intervention once it’s been in the ground for six months. You can cut off the top of the tree if you want a bushier look, but overall, this tree is picked for its tall column-like shape, so it looks best if you leave your pruning shears in the garden shed.

Fertilizing: This tree isn’t fussy about soil. It grows equally well in clay, loam, or sandy soils. It also does not need routine fertilizing.

Pests: Mites become a problem if the tree dries out too much. Use insecticidal soap on a day when the temperature is forecast to be below 70 degrees to spray the mites. You can also help the tree by giving it extra water during dry weather periods. Occasionally, bag worms are a problem. The best way to take care of this pest is to pick off the bags. (They look like cocoons.)

Why is this plant not recommended for Texas?
Rose S on Jun 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Italian cypress is recommend for growing zones 7 - 11 which includes most of Texas. Only the northernmost part of Texas near Oklahoma's pan handle is outside of growing zone 7.
We live in an area that can get heavy rain fall, on average we get approx. 8" in July and an average of 62-63" per year total. I would like to line my back fence with Italian Cypress. We get a good amount of sun. However, if we are having a crazy rainy season, we can get standing water in this same area of the yard. Typically standing water will drain away in a day or two max. For the majority of the year it is dry in the back of our yard. Is it safe to plant the Italian Cypress in my yard?
Glenda L on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting us. Italian Cypress do not typically like to be in standing water. It could lead to root rot. If you choose to plant these trees you may want to back fill the holes you plant them in with gravel. We hope this information helpful.

robert c on Jul 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Robert
Actually they do have a fruit. It produces a small oval brown fruit. It is considered inconspicuous and leaves no significant litter.
Will this tree grow in the shade?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Italian Cypress need at least 6 hours of sunlight per day That's what mine have and they are doing well. I don't think they would thrive in the shade.
do these trees emit an odor during early fall?
A shopper on Sep 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, they don't bloom nor have odor, just stand stately and enjoy hot, dry soil to thrive.
What is the root system like? How far away from a septic system can I plant?
Tyler C on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We would never recommend planting any trees near a septic system. Italian cypress trees are have a fibrous root system. Fibrous roots branch out relatively evenly through the soil, creating a matting network in the top layer of soil. For mature Italian cypress trees, the roots can go down several feet. Fibrous roots don't anchor as well as tap roots, but the pencil-like upper structure of the Italian cypress tree keeps it from capturing too much wind in storms, putting less stress on the root system.
What is life expectancy of the Italian Cypress ?
James G on Oct 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Italian Cypress can live up to 1,000 years.
is the Italian cypress deer resistant?
bob l on Apr 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Italian Cypress has been known to be deer resistant.

Any chance these will grow in SE Colorado- zone 5ish-hot in summer, mild but windy winters?
Keli R on Aug 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not sure, but in Raleigh, NC area have about a two ft per year growth with 5 of the seven I planted.
Are there cold hardy varieties?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately the Italian Cypress doesn't have a cold hardier variety. We commend looking into the Emerald Green Thuja or Willow Hybrid as alternatives.
We live near Tulsa, OK and are looking for this as a privacy screen in our back yard since we have a pool. I would also like to have some help with wind break from the North. How far apart do the trees need to be planted? Which type of tree would be best in our area?
kufan on Jul 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I really like Italian Cypress but don't feel that they are a good solution for your situation. All five I purchased are doing well, and two years later just clear four feet. For a wind screen, they should be about three feet apart but it will take more that 7 years to create a screen. I would suggest planting a few on the property, but use something else for your wind block.
if the italian cypress won't work in zone 6, is there an alternative cedar or cypress that would work? I like the taller slim look, I am not looking for total shade or privacy
Bevan B on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Spartan or skyrocket juniper.
Will the roots lift the concrete patio if the planting area is only 2.5 feet by 10 feet? the purpose is to hide a very large slanted roof my neighbor just built along our side fence. Also, what is the best size to plant so it will be healthy and grow fast? I need it to grow to 20 feet as quickly as possible.
Leslie B on Nov 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This tree has a non invasive root structure that can be planted very close to structures with no problems. This tree grows about 3 feet per year. The 4 -5 ft trees seem to e the best for your needs.
Our Italian Cypress is over 15 ft tall and is bifurcating at the very tip. How can we keep tree growing taller without the byfurcation?
Jody F on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Only way to force your tree back into one trunk is to cut/remove one of the two leaders at the top. It's usually best to make the cut where the split into two starts. You can make the cut higher and leave part of that leader if it has been quite a while since the split began. The key is to remove the terminal bud at the very top of the leader you choose to stop from growing taller. Cutting 3 or 4 inches will remove the bud and stop the growth. May need to watch closely for this to happen again but usually it does not.
When can Italian Cypress be planted? We live in Charlotte, NC and wanted to plant this month (August).
David D on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not an expert on your area, (I live in Tampa, FL and we have no winter to speak of), but I think it should be okay to plant in August, if you make sure that it gets watered fairly often while getting established. Mine adjusted well and they have grown pretty quickly.
Can I grow it in the container? I live in NY - zone 7
Joanna O on Nov 29, 2018

Will these look decent planted as single trees rather than in a row for privacy?
Teach4peace on Jul 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you were putting it in a space as an accent it would be a good stand alone. They grow straight up not getting too much increase in girth. I love them.
Are they deer resistant?
M S on Sep 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't know. No deer in the area. But the tree is growing beautifully--much admired by neighbors.
can i grow italian cypress trees inside?
alix tew on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don’t believe they are intended for inside trees! You can try but they require a lot of sun and plenty of water and a very large pot since they grow fast and tall. The ones I purchaed two years ago were 5 feet and they’ve doubled in size
HOW wide is the Italian cypress root system, we,are looking for a neighbor barrier but have a pool 10 ft off back fence ??so between fence and pool???
Kathy O on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Experts say to expect the roots to need to go down 2 feet and outwards 1.5x mature width of tree. Since tree width can extend 3' out from trunk, figure each tree needs a 4.5' radius (distance from trunk center to an underground barrier) or 9' diameter to have enough room.

I planted my 1/2 gallon pot, 2' high Italian Cypress 2 years ago in spring, zone 7b, south facing: spaced 5' apart but only 3' from my foundation wall of house. The two that grew 1' the first year are growing 1.5' this last year but they get full morning sun from 6am to 11am. And a lot of reflected light from neighbors house stucco walls all afternoon.

The two that are shaded by neighbors trees are growing at rate of 6-8" per year but they do get midday sun from 10am to 1pm.

The two tallest trees will begin to offer the privacy screen I want between my neighbors front porch and their 2nd floor deck --privacy for my covered deck off my 2nd floor master bedroom-- in about 10-12 more years.

Seems like you could plant your line of trees in middle of your 10' strip. They don't shed leaves-- great bear a pool. Just watch out for root rot and they won't appreciate a lot of chlorine iutgassing from pool. Also pool users won't enjoy walking on that side of pool because will be slightly prickly to rub up against them when they are mature. In that case, maybe plant them close to neighbors fence or wall, 3 feet from fence or wall if their roots can go underneath the barrier you could plant them that close and at maturity the base of trees might slightly touch the neighbor fence.

Here's advice on prevention of mechanical (lawn mower damage to trunk and other damage from stuff hitting the tree and branches
Google cypress tree root rot

I've got a few brown tips 3-4 per tree) on topmost new growth area that may be resulting from the much too close to crown on trunks. They're on a drip system and get plenty of water in a sloped sandy soil.

Good luck!
Can I plant succulents and other drought resistant plants in a bed in front of a row of cypress or will the roots crowd them?
Renee S on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in the mid-south and have roses growing near my Italian cypress. You should be able to plant succulents and other drought resistant plants near Italian Cypress.
