I recently purchased a 5-6’ PGP, decent specimen (IMO) from Iseli, but the only “negative” is it has 2 leaders that form a V. Questions: 1) Should I remove one of the legs of the V so that there will be just one leader? Unfortunately both legs are angled outward, neither being straight up like…

They are definitely much more hardy than zone 8, I also live in Zone 6b in eastern Washington, and these trees have no problems, despite winter temps that regularly go below the cold limit of 10-20 degrees. They are growing at a similar rate to the native ponderosas here as well.

How much do you charge for the Arizona Cypress Trees? I am looking for this cypress in one gallon pots.

Posted 14 days ago by Reyd to Ellwoodii

You can bury the pots in the ground. But if the ground is not frozen yet, you can plant, it does not matter if the 1st freeze is tomorrow, planting asap is almost always the best choice. Otherwise you can overwinter inside an unheated shed or garage.

I want to plant one of this acrocona conifers at my front yard. Question: Will the branches grow back again if I cut them? Some times I like to make floral arrangements for my house and I would like to use some branches for that. But I know that there are conifers that won't grow back their…

Just got one and love the beautiful form, but disappointed that so far mine is NOT GOLD but green, which belies the "retains its golden color throughout the year". The photo accompanying the article also shows a not-gold tree, I notice!

Good to hear they took yours back. I’m getting conflicting answers on the color difference. Some say that the greener ones I bought were from Oregon and once they’ve established themselves in the Midwest they’ll turn a bluish color. Others say the color change is due to them being of different…

I had planted mine and the nursery did not want to take them back. I ended up digging them out and taking them back anyway in their containers. When asked why I had planted them, that I had trusted the nursery, their tags, and my horticulturist. Once I saw the new ones in/next to the ones…

It is best for the sake of both the species survival (through preserving genetic variability) and for wildlife to grow the species rather than cultivars.

I had mine trimmed a year before moving from So Cal. by Grant Forrester with the Aesthetic Pruning Association. Members of the APA are taught to prune and enhance the plant so it looks 100% natural. Grant was able to dramatically reduce the width (as they were encroaching on a walkway) and reduce…

One of our white pines looks alarming after a sudden dip in temperature, zone 6a. Kept all our trees well watered during our summer drought. The bottom branch segment looks dried out and or frozen. Now it’s moving upwards in the tree. Have a picture I’d like to send.

Hi Lisa, I’m in Niagara on the southern side of L. Ontario. We planted 2 this past summer in our ravine yard. 10’ tall when planted. Can’t wait for them to fill in as a backdrop to our 4 tulip trees. These were all planted to replace scrub and diseased ash and to provide a sound barrier to a…
