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.
