America's Most Popular Privacy Tree

Why Leyland Cypress Trees?

The Leyland Cypress is America's most planted privacy tree for a reason. For starters, this amazing tree grows up to 3 to 5 feet each year, boasts feathery soft, lush foliage, and is drought tolerant. Strength and beauty in one? Check.

Well-known for their iconic columnar silhouettes, Leyland Cypresses grow very fast and thicken to create a solid wall. And their textured foliage is soft to the touch - no unpleasant thorns or prickly leaves. Plus, it stays green year-round, giving you complete privacy. Though your Leyland Cypress grows rapidly, it's easily pruned to your desired shape and height. But even without trimming, your Leyland Cypress trees will grow in a uniform, symmetrical shape that gives you a dense, living wall.

Space your Leylands 8 feet apart for a privacy hedge, or farther apart for a spacious property border. Either way, you'll have hardy, vibrant trees that will give you the fastest growth possible.

And since we've planted, grown and nurtured our Leyland Cypresses for best results, you get the easy benefits in your landscape. Basically, we're done the hard work at our nursery so that you don't have to...you get a lush, green tree you'll enjoy for years to come, without hassle.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Leyland Cypresses 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.

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. Center the tree in the planting hole and back fill with soil. Create a watering ring around the perimeter of the planting hole (this helps divert water to the outer roots). Mulch with at least three inches of compost or pulverized bark.

2. Watering: Water around 2-3 times per week during the first month to help the establishment. When watering, allow it to saturate the soil around 6-8 inches down to avoid making the soil soggy. Gradually transition to watering 1-2 times per week for the first year. As your tree matures, less water will be required unless times of drought occur

3. Fertilizing: 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.

4. 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.

Review

Great and unlike the others 2, this recent tree is much more healthier and well developed and flourishing. Which should grow much quicker than the 2 preceding (4-5 ft) trees. Send the next one well developed and flourishing to.

Satisfied customer

After my local nursery sold the ten trees I reserved for fall planting, I found the FastGrowingTrees website and ordered. Four days later ten great looking trees showed up on my driveway. No problems at all. I will recommend them to everyone.
