One of the most sought after Christmas trees in the Southeastern United States.  The Leyland foliage is dark green, has upright branches with a feathery appearance, and has a light scent.  Leyland is a great choice for people who suffer from allergies to other Christmas tree types.   Because Leyland Cypress is a hybrid cross, they produce no pollen.  The most popular characteristic is that Leyland Cypress never shed any old needles.  If watered daily, a Leyland Christmas tree will last from 4 to 6 weeks in the home and will shed very few needles when they are removed.
