Leland Cypress - Photo at right - foliageLeyland Cypress needles close-up is dark green to gray color; has upright branches with a feathery appearance; has a light scent; good for people with allergies to other Christmas tree types. The most popular Christmas tree in the South-East, the Leyland Cypress is dark green - gray in color and has very little aroma. The needles are soft and won't hurt even a toddler. Because it is not in the Pine or Fir family, it does not produce sap, so that those with an allergy to sap can still enjoy a Leyland as their Christmas Tree.
The Leyland is a hybrid between Monterey and Nootka cypresses and can grow hufe, up to 120 ft.
 If you live in very warm climates, like the Deep South, the Leyland may be your only choice if you want to cut your own tree. More info
