Leyland cypress tree question
[Return to Topics]

I want to plant leyland cypress trees along the edge of my property. I will need 200 or more. Does anyone know how to start these trees? Seed or cutting? I look for them in the gardening seed catalogs, but never see them listed. Thanks for the help.

Instead of lelands why not this which works real well

in a group of 3 plant
3 red tips
3 grasses
3 low shrubs

the red tips go to about 20 feet and grow abot 2-3 feet a year
the grasses grow to 6 feet in a single year
the shrubs will cover the bottoms

It will cost about a 1/3 or what the lelands will and do it faster and look nicer

Hi VKG,
My wife has planted several that are now about three years old. She found them at a nursery on sale, about five bucks each. I guess we are speaking of the same tree as the nursery said they were Leyland Pines. Anyway, these do not grow very tall, about 15 feet I think is correct. For the quantity that you need, you will have to get seedlings or the price may be prohibitive. Check with your state forestry service. Good luck.

Yeah even the leyland seedlings are pretty pricey.

Across the road from me the old man has some he set out in 1980, They are about 40 ft tall now. They stay green and beautiful year round.

He put some in about 10 yrs ago that were supposed to be the same leyland cypress but they must be bald cypress because they are not evergreen.
