Brief Summary of the Leyland Cypress

Leyland Cypress (Cupressocyparis leylandii) adapts well to practically all soils- clay, sand, and most mixtures.   Once firmly established in soil, the tree adapts well to moderate drought conditions and likes full sun or partial.  They should not be planted in low-lying or swampy areas.   The Leyland provides excellent privacy around homes and businesses.  They enhance the beauty and value of homes and stay green year round.  They are also used in agriculture areas and provide excellent wind barriers around perimeters of field and pastures
