Our Leyland cypress are about 5 years old now and we had a drought here in south alabama last year, and we did not water thinking that they a good root system and would makeit. Wrong! we lost about 4 trees! So we thought that we would mulch this year and see if that would help.We have cedar shavings available but are skiddish about using. Is pine straw a better choice?
