Product Description

America's Fastest-Growing 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, with feathery soft, lush foliage and drought tolerance.

It’s also known for its iconic columnar silhouettes. Leyland Cypresses grow and thicken quickly to create a solid wall. And their textured foliage is soft to the touch – no unpleasant thorns or prickly leaves to deal with. Plus, it stays green year-round, giving you complete privacy.

Who is Fast Growing Trees?

We are the largest mail-order nursery in the country, shipping bigger and better trees directly to your door.

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, all without any hassle on your part.

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 your Leyland Cypress with at least an inch of water per week, keeping the soil moist but not oversaturated - generally, we recommend letting a garden hose run for about 1 to 3 minutes per week, depending on your soil. The deeper you water the tree, the better the tree will grow.

If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 3 inches down - if the soil is dry here, it's time to water.

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.

Happy with Leland Cypress purchase

Purchased 4 Leland Cypress trees and all arrived well packaged and intact. Trees were all healthy in appearance. Service was top-notch. Trees are planted and we’re looking forward to years of growth!

Leyland Cypress

The experience was good. The tree arrived on time and in excellent condition. Was a little expensive. After this purchase, I found much less expensive places to buy this same tree. Free shipping would have also been nice. But, overall a good experience.

They came to me in excellent shape. I am trying to convince a couple of friends to purchase this Cypress from FasTrees because the Cypress would be perfect for their situation and the trees arrive in excellent condition.

LEYLAND CYPRESS

As usual Fast Growing Trees does not disappoint in their fast delivery as well as how good the trees are packed. They have been planted and are looking good so far. My goal is to see them grow -If they grow as listed on the website, my review will go to five stars.
