Arizona Cypress is the only Cypress native to the southwest, where its conical, Christmas tree shape stands out against the often irregular crowns of other desert trees. This conifer creates a cooling, woodsy effect in the landscape, and looks best when allowed to grow naturally with little or no pruning.
With a moderate growth rate, strong wood and sturdy branches, Arizona Cypress is an excellent windbreak, and its dense, evergreen foliage makes an ideal large-scale screen or barrier. The tree’s bark is also attractive, shredding and peeling as the tree ages to reveal furrows or patches of reddish-brown and gray.
