Cypress (Cupressus) –

Cypress (Cupressus spp.) have very tiny, scale-like leaves that can potentially be sharp and/or pointed. Cypress cones are small (about 1/2 inch in diameter), round, and woody. These trees are fast growers and can make good wind screens. Trees can get upwards of 80ft tall but most mature at 40-50ft tall. The Wilma Goldcrest is a dwarf variety that gets 8ft tall and 3ft wide.
