About Leyland Cypress Trees
The Leyland Cypress tree is great if you need to create privacy for your home. It's a fast growing tree with a growing around 2-3 feet per year. We recommend planting them in a line with about 5 feet apart from each other to create quick privacy. When planting alone the tree looks like Christmas tree.
The Leyland Cypress is a hybrid between the Alaskan Cypress and the Monterey Cypress. The hybrid cross occured in 1888 and has been used in landscaping ever since discovered. Leyland Cypress are very hardy plants and easy to care for requiring simple maintenence. They are also known to be drought tolerant.

Leyland Cypress Reviews
"I have received my order of 30 Leyland Cypress and the trees were looked in very good condition. This was my second order form Anything Green. I had ordered another 40 Leyland Cypress in spring, 2007."
"I simply had to come write about how satisfied & impressed I am with your service. Last week I ordered 40 Leyland Cypress within only a few days my order arrived. All 40 Leylands were neatly and safely secured inside a thick box. Every single one of the trees I ordered is bright green, healthy, and far taller than I thought they would be. The root clusters are dense, moist, and appear more than ready to be planted. A++ service here, no question about that..."

within only a few days my order arrived. All 40 Leylands were neatly and safely secured inside a thick box. Every single one of the trees I ordered is bright green, healthy, and far taller than I thought they would be. The root clusters are dense, moist, and appear more than ready to be planted. A++ service here, no question about that.
I ordered 2 Micro SD Memory cards from Best Buy's website that are the size of my pinky finger nail & it took them almost 3 weeks to get my order to me, but somehow Anythinggreen can ship me 40 trees in something like 4 days. WELL DONE!
I own and operate my own Landscaping business and I will be certain to make more orders and turn many new people onto your website. Thank you so much for not offering typical contemporary American Fast-food terrible service. Again, A++!"

Leyland Cypress Planting Instructions
Leyland Cypress Fertilizer InformationWhen looking for a fertilizer there are a few elements at which you should look. The first is make sure when fertilizing your Leyland Cypress that you are using a slow release fertilizer. Sometimes this is called a controlled release.
Then you'll need to look at the formula of the fertilizer. It is done in this format: Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K).
For the Leyland Cypress we recommend that Nitrogen be high and then Phosphorus and Potassium be about half of that. Some examples that are commonly found in local stores are 12-6-8 and 14-7-7.
You should always follow the instructions on the fertilizer you purchase as they all work differently. Here are some general guidelines that you should follow.
Pruning Leyland Cypress
Pruning can help make Leyland Cypress more bushy. It is
recommended that you disinfect your shears before you begin and even
after each shear to prevent disease spread. You should prune dead
or diseased limbs anytime of the year but you should consult your local
coop extension for your local time to prune. To encourage thick
bushy trees simply trim back the limbs that have outstretched the rest
of the tree. Trim it in to the desired christmas tree shape.
