Properties and uses:
The Leyland Cypress is today the most widely used tree for the composition of screening and wind- breaking hedges. The green “walls” obtained are very dense and will protect you very quickly against prying eyes. Very vigorous and resistant to disease, the Leyland Cypress lends itself well to pruning.
