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
January 1, 2013
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 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
January 1, 2013
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
January 1, 2013
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,
January 1, 2013
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
January 1, 2013
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.
January 1, 2013
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.
January 1, 2013
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!!
January 1, 2013
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

Planting & Care



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


Leyland Cypress Planting Diretions

The Leyland Cypress is a fast growing ever-green tree most commonly recognized for it's thick, bushy fir and classical conical shape; it's not hard to see why the Leyland Cypress is a popular choice around the holiday season. However, the Leyland Cypress also thrives in California's Central Valley and has come to be very useful in other areas of horticulture. The Leyland Cypress has been shown to reduce allergenic symptoms when placed in a persons environment and are particularly durable trees which lend themselves to creating privacy in the home.

Seasonal information: Leyland Cypress is a rapid growing conifer averaging three or more feet per year. Its rapid growth makes this tree ideal for hedges, windbreaks, and Christmas tree production. Its overall vigor makes this tree very easy to grow all year round.

Choosing a location: Leyland Cypress grow to heights of 50 feet with a canopy that can spread out to about 25 feet. If you want a taller hedge, screen or windbreak, young trees should be spaced at least 25 feet apart. If you're growing a hedge, a space of 8 to 10 feet between trees is ideal. It will take about five to seven years for the space between the trees to fill.

Planting instructions:
1) To plant a Leyland Cypress, dig a planting hole twice the size of the root ball and as deep as the soil in the container.
2) Scarify the sides of the planting hole with a pitchfork or shovel.
3) Center the tree in the planting hole and back fill with soil.
4) Create a watering ring around the perimeter of the planting hole (this helps divert water to the outer roots).
5) Mulch with at least three inches of compost or pulverized bark.

Watering: Water your Leyland Cypress with at least an inch of water per week, keeping the soil moist to a depth of 18 inches. The deeper you water the tree, the better the tree will grow. Mulching will greatly reduce the amount of times you need to water as it will retain the soil moisture better.

Fertilization: If your Leyland Cypress needs fertilizer at all, it should be fertilized with a shrub and tree fertilizer, unless a soil test shows that nutrients are low or missing. If the soil is missing or low on nutrients, use a nutrient-specific fertilizer.

Weed Control: In addition to the watering and fertilizing, it is important to keep your area weed-free, especially since weeds will steal moisture and nutrients. Keep your Leyland Cypress from becoming over populated by other plants and wildlfie underneath.

Pests and Disease: There are only four main diseases of Leyland Cypress. Seiridium canker or stem canker, causes branches and entire trees to die. Cercosporidium Blight is a very aggressive fungi and Cercosporidium usually attacks trees that have been stressed from shearing, drought, lack of fertilizer, or hot sun. It almost always starts on the sunny side of the tree. The last disease is Phytophthora root rot. This disease occurs with trees having poor drainage, or that have been over watered, and is not generally a large problem.

Pruning: These trees require very little pruning. You may want to consider pruning if you are using them as a hedge, however for the most part they require little to no pruning.

I live in Northeast Texas (zone 8) we live out in the country but someone has bought the land next to us and built a shop and home. We wanted to regain our privacy without losing our great view of the outdoors. The mature height of these trees and the fact it is resistant to our very hot summers and sometimes very cold winters, as well as its fast growth was exactly what we were looking for. Hoping for a great beautiful privacy wall in the next few years.

Is planting cypress near houses dangerous for foundations?
Robin J on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, the Leyland Cypress do not have invasive roots. I would plant 12-15 feet away from foundations.
how far apart do you plant making a wall around yard?
A shopper on Sep 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We recommend to plant the Leyland cypress 5-6 foot apart to create a very nice privacy wall.
watering small plants in cold temps?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If the ground is not frozen and a week has gone by without rain, sleet, snow, that's your clue. So water your new evergreens now provide enough moisture to the root zone now to get them through the winter.
how long do these cypress grow at 3 feet per year?
A shopper on May 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: At an immature age they will only grow about 1 foot per year... They need to become established before the rapid growth kicks in... around year 3.
How far in diameter does the root system extend?
Shonet B on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Plant about six feet apart and you can not go wrong. I'm not sure what the root system extends to. They do grow amazingly tall so I would think so do the roots.
Deer resistant?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Leyland Cypress Tree is Deer Resistant. However if a winter is cold enough and food is sparse pesky deer will eat anything.
can they take lots of shade?
Barb K on Jun 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you want them to grow as they should, they should have full sun. We planted about 15 and there are 3 that get some shade and they were stunted.
Have wetland area will this tree grow in it. Has standing water?
michael c on May 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It will not do very well in standing water. Not many evergreens will tolerate that. I would suggest a Willow Hybrid as it will do well there, but keep in mind it is not an evergreen. It still will provide you with great privacy year round and grows very quickly.
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 close can I plant these to an in ground pool?
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.
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.
Are they safe for horses?
m t on Sep 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortualey the Leyland Cypress's are toxic to horses.
Are the Leyland pictures here on your website pictures of trimmed or shaped Leylands or pictures of natural growth if left to grow freely?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: All evergreens can be trimmed, however the Leyland cypress tend to grow that conical shape naturally, and the ones in our pictures have not been pruned.
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 you would want to plant them 5-6ft apart.
What is the lifespan of a Leyland Cypress tree? I hope it's longer then 15 years. I planted 3 of them in spring of 2008 and they are over 2 stories high and look great.
ELYSE G on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The life span is 40-70 years.
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.
Are Leyland cypress trees deer resistant?
Duane C on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are rarely damaged by deer. Please keep in mind if they get hungry enough they will eat anything.
Are the roots of the Leyland Cypress invasive and do they break concrete foundations?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We have not had any issues with roots
Will this tree invade our pond if we plant them 10 feet from it?
michele r on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No
Ok I got all 12 of my Leyland cypress trees planted and flooded the holes to get the air out. But, how often should I water these now?
David E on Nov 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your watering schedule will be determined by what plant hardiness zone you live in. These plants can grow in zones 6 to 10. I live in TX, so these will not live without a dedicated drip irrigation line.

My TX watering schedule using a drip line:
PHASE 1: Water .25 hour every day for the first 10 days after planting.
PHASE 2: Water .25 hour every other day for days 11 through 40 after planting.
PHASE 3: Water twice a week for .25 hour after the trees have been planted for 50 days

Hope this info helps!

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.
Can I plant these in Sept? I planted all others in the spring, but really want a privacy fence to get started.
Keli R on Aug 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not knowing what zone you're in makes the answer a little more difficult but I would say you could plant them anytime as long as you use the right soil around them for adequate drainage. Use the planting mix offered by Fast-Growing trees to get thm o adapt as quickly as possible.
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: Once you shorten them you'll need a new leader for them o grow any higher. Shortening them will stunt their vertical growth for a long time. Trimming around them is not a problem.
Are they a heavy water needed?
Diana D on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Leyland Cypress are not heavy water required evergreens. During the first year of planting when they are getting established, watering once a week to maintain some moisture is required if rain is insufficient. I planted these evergreens in the Spring and watered them with a healthy drink once a week if rain was insufficient or during the hot summer in Illinois. Once established, they require no attention unless there is a drought when all evergreens should get a drink so they don't dry out and die which happened a few years ago in central Illinois during a long dry spell with scorching temperatures.
I live in the high desert (Lucerne Valley, Ca), how would they do in that area?
Karen P on May 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Leyland are thirsty trees. Arizona Cypress are beautiful and after watering your first summer you never have to water the Arizona C again.
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.
I live on a busy street and want to create a noise barrier how close can I plant these trees to close the gap asap?
Chuck B on Feb 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There are guidelines for spacing in a straight line. I made two rows in parallel straight lines and kept them 9 eett apart. Works very well
Does a wall of Leyland Cypress's help reduce road noise?
James B on Feb 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes if they are connected leaf to leaf.
I have 6 Leland cypress trees about 2 1/2 years old. can they be transplanted?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2014
