Re: Patio privacy ideas?

Leland Cypress may not be what you want.

Problems they will, and can have.

1. If planted close together, there will be dead areas where the trees grow together (I believe this is a common issue with most all Cypress trees).

2. They cannot take a heavy snow , or ice, load.

3. Shallow root system makes them prone to fall over in high winds, or under heavy loads.

4. They are not tall and narrow like the Italian Cypress, so they will take up a lot more room.

5. They can, and will, grow to heights of 50 feet (this is not so good).

After having several fall ON my house, I helped my neighbor remove those he had planted.
