 Saw this in a garden and was asked if its dead or just shredding, it looks like a cypress or leylandii but to be honest I don't know. I took a picture so you can see the green at the top of it, any advise will be very much appreciated image

  • It's almost Spring Paul, so I'd say wait and see what happens. Looks pretty kaput to me, but you never know!

    Only thing that is useful for now is kindling!

    Looks dead to me.  I'd take it down.

    If it's leylandii I'd love to know how you killed it!

    Otherwise it's pretty brown bread!

     

  • Hmmm yeah I thought so, but like you said Jess I will see how it goes and as everyone said, it looks like its on its ways to the chopper. Thanks for all your feedback image

    Sorry Paul - but like the famous parrot from Monty Python - that is an ex conifer...imageimage

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Dormant (or dead) Cytisus?

    Don't think so - if you zoom in the leaves look like a Cupressus.

    A photo of the still green bit might ID the shrub/tree.

    Ah! Just zoomed in! Didn't know you could do that. image

    I'll second guess at Lawson's Cypress. The green bit on the left looks a bit bluey.
