x Cupressocyparis leylandii

The horror stories of giant out of control 50 ft Leylandii hedges are not exaggerated.
Lawyers books in the U.K.are full of cases of inconsiderate neighbours Leylandii hedges blocking out daylight and causing complete despair in the process.
Perhaps less well known is the fact that the Leyland cypress has a surprisingly weak root system for such an ultimately large tree.
I have seen 50 ft whoppers being toppled like dominoes in a storm causing major damage to property.
