Cupressus nootkatensis 'Strict Weeping' / Alaska Cedar, Nootka-cypress

Tall, extremely narrow tree with foliage hanging down directly against the trunk with only an occasional aberrant branch. This tree is pendulous to the extreme. There are other narrow weeping Nootka False Cypress, such as 'Green Arrow' and 'Jubilee' with 'Green Arrow' being most like 'Strict Weeping' and 'Jubilee' being wider than the two. But strictly speaking, Strict is the skinniest of the three.
