Top Tree to Increase Property Value
Why Italian Cypress Trees?
With an elegant, narrow silhouette that grows up to 3 feet each year, the Italian Cypress is one of the top trees to increase your property value. Especially since it's tolerant of many climates and gives height to your foundation plantings without taking up a lot of room.
Architects use Italian Cypresses 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 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.

Planting & Care
Planting Instructions: Ideal for tight spaces, the Italian Cypress Tree isn’t finicky but does prefer full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil.
When it’s time to plant your Italian Cypress, start by digging a hole that’s at least twice the width of your tree’s root ball. After placing your tree in the hole, back fill the soil, and tamp down the soil to ensure air pockets are eliminated. Finally, water your Italian Cypress to help establish its roots.
Watering: Your new Italian Cypress Tree should be watered twice a week for the first month, once a week for the next two months and then every two weeks after the first three months. Though it’s drought tolerant, too much warmth and wind can dry it out, so keep an eye on the soil’s moisture. If you’re not sure when to water, check the surrounding soil about 2 to 3 inches down. If the soil is dry, it’s time to water your tree.
Pruning: The Italian Cypress Tree doesn’t need pruning, but for shaping purposes, you can prune the top of the tree if you want a fuller, bushier silhouette.
