conical evergreen boundary

claire o mahony asked 12 years ago
Im looking to put in a hedge, one that will grow quite high. I have seen tall narrow evergreen trees, cone like in shape and have a regal look to them. Ideally these would grow fast, maintain their shape with little maintenance. Any idea what these may have been?lenght of border is approx 50 metres so what would cost etc amount to?

This tree is probably an upright form of Lawson cypress, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana, such as ‘Columnaris’ or ‘Kilmacurragh’.

These grow reasonably fast. But any fast-growing tree will tend to keep on growing and will not stop at the required height, and will not be maintenance-free.

Cost depends on size and garden centre.
