Cypress tree questions

joey383January 10, 2014

Hey guys. I bought a house on 3.2 acres with nothing but rows of pecan trees (12) on it. The pecan trees are nice but my yard I very plain besides a couple of crepe myrtles. I have always liked Leyland Cypress trees. So I'm going to line the back of the property with them. My question is are there any other kind of cypress trees comparable to the Leyland Cypress that could plant elsewhere that looks good? I really love the look of them. I also live in north Florida if that helps

Thanks in advance!

Native bald cypress would do well, albeit, they are a deciduous conifer. I don't consider that a drawback, but you might. I think they're beautiful even in winter plumage, with the orangey-brown coloration.
