Arizona Cypress

Anonymous added on December 14, 2010 | Answered

We are planning to plant a screen of trees along the road frontage of our property, the approximate length is 1800 feet. We have selected the Arizona Cypress, as it's very hardy and grows well in all types of soil, is both sun and wind tolerant, and fast growing. As we wish to have a screen, how far apart should we plant the trees? We have been told to plant them every six feet, but this seems far too close to me. Also, when is the best time to plant them?

If you want them for a screen, 6' is about right. They will grow into each other, but that will create a solid screen. You could go as wide as 10'-12' if you are looking to save some money but still want to have a good screen.

The best time to plant will be in the spring.
