I started with 4-5 foot trees to get some privacy on my back patio. 3 years later, they have filled in just as I wanted!
So happy with our purchase! Shipping was fast and the trees were very healthy and were perfect for our project.
I ordered 5 Italian Cyprus trees - they came quickly and were packaged well. I was impressed from the start - then I pulled them out of the box and WOW!
Whelp here’s the proof how MAGNIFICENT THESE TRULY ARE… It’s been almost a year and a half and these have literally taken off to fulfill our dream!
This is a large landscape tree and as such, requires a bit of planning before planting. First, choose an area that receives at least four hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight per day. Then, measure the area where you would like to plant your hedge or row. You will need the length of the area of planting to estimate the number of trees you need.
When planting, dig a hole for each tree that is three times as wide as the root ball but just as deep. You don’t need to add anything to the planting hole. Place the tree, fill in around the tree with the same soil you took out when initially digging the hole. Finally, tamp down as you fill to cut back on any air pockets from forming, water the tree, then mulch to conserve moisture.
Water your trees well for the first two weeks after planting. You should keep the soil evenly moist with no standing water. If you’re unsure when to water, feel the soil a few inches down, and water if it’s dry.
During the second two weeks, switch to watering every three days with the same method mentioned above. After the first month, water once a week unless it is dry and hot (no rain and temperatures above 80 degrees). If it is hot and dry, water twice a week. After the first six months, the trees will be established and won’t need any extra water. Your natural rainfall should be sufficient at this stage.
You won’t have to prune this tree if you’re growing it with enough space for it to maintain its naturally graceful pyramid shape. If you’re growing several close together as a hedge, you can shear the plants yearly after the final frost.
Depending on the height you’d like to achieve from your privacy screen, follow this spacing guide when planting your trees in a straight row:
Distance Between Trees
20-25 feet tall
5 feet apart
25-30 feet tall
8 feet apart
40+ feet tall
10 feet apart
Possibly the best feature of this evergreen is that deer don’t favor the taste. If you live in an area with heavy deer pressure, spray your thujas every 3 to 6 months with deer repellent. That’s all the protection you need.
