Italian Cypress Frequently Asked Questions
How fast do Italian Cypress trees grow?
Once established, young trees can grow as much as 2 feet a year. Once a tree matures and gets above 20 feet tall the growth rate slows down considerably. Expect about 12 inches per year once an Italian Cypress tree gets that tall.
How far apart should I plant Italian Cypress trees?
Italian Cypress are not suited for being planted tightly together. They need airflow to help keep them healthy. Having said that, they only mature to about 6 feet wide. Plant them at least 3 to 4 feet apart measuring from the center of your planting hole.
Can you keep Italian Cypress pruned to a smaller height?
Regular pruning early on could keep the height down. Italian Cypress do not grow back from old wood, frequent pruning can be bad for your trees.
