Leyland cypress tree background

Originating in Montgomeryshire Wales, at the Leighton Hall Poweys estate, Monterey cypress and Nootka cypress were planted in close proximity to each other. Rumor has it that they were both parent trees. In the wild, these two different trees would never encounter each other because they would grow very far away from each other. They would actually be about 400 miles apart. But alas, they found their way next to each other on the lawn of an estate and the rest is history. In 1888, the flowers of the Nootka cypress became fertilized by the pollen of the Monterey cypress. A hybrid began to grow. Over time, different beneficiaries of the estate continued to experiment with different variations of growing new hybrids with the Nootka and the Monterey trees. At first, it was thought that the Leyland trees were sterile. Now, we know that isn’t true; there are over forty different forms of Leyland cypress trees!

Leyland cypress trees love the light but are capable of withstanding salt spray, and high levels of pollution. They are in high demand because of their growth rate. Leyland cypress trees grow incredibly fast and require very little overall maintenance. In 1925, Leyland trees gained popularity when people began realizing how quickly the trees grew, and their ability to withstand the high winds of Cornwall. Commercial nurseries saw the potential of the trees and began selling them. It was a great call because it was the hottest selling item in nurseries in Great Britan. They were so popular, they made up 10% of total sales of the Great Britan nurseries.
