Leyland cypress has a short lifespan for an evergreen tree, surviving for 10 to 20 years. This tall, evergreen conifer is grown commercially in the southeast as a Christmas tree.
Leyland cypress trees need a location in full sun or partial shade and a rich, well-drained soil. Avoid windy sites where the tree may be blown over.
