We grow three types of farm cypress.
Cypress Leylandi (Castlewellan Gold)
Cypress Leylandi (Leighton Green)
Cypress Lambertiana (Western District Cypress)
Cypresses form the ideal windbreak around a lambing paddock or shelter for newly shorn sheep.
The disadvantage of cypresses over natives is that in the case of fire, cypresses will be destroyed, whereas natives will regenerate. Also natives will attract the native birds.
Best tree planting times vary according to location and the moisture content in the soil.
All cypresses are extremely frost hardy and not subject to insect attack.
