In your garden
This is a fast-growing tree, which means it may require quite a bit of tidying and maintenance throughout the year. It would not be out of the ordinary to have to trim this tree two or even three times in the spring and summer months.
Because of its rapid growth and dense foliage, the Leyland Cypress can often be found making up hedging or as a screen, both visual and acoustic, to prevent your home from being overlooked by neighbours or from the road.
Threats your Leyland Cypress may face
This is a hardy tree, but no tree is immune to all the pests and diseases that impact tree growth and survival in the UK. If you know what to look out for you may be better prepared should your trees get into trouble.
