|Botanical Name||Cupressus macrocarpa|
|Common Name||Monterey Cypress|
|Notes||Monterey Cypress trees are very fast growing, they are one of the original parents of the Lelandii hedge hybrid, which was fine when they were being planted in large Victorian and Edwardian gardens. As the town has become more crowded many of these elegant giants have been topped out and pruned to keep them in check. Generally this spoils a potentially elegant tree, compare this strange specimen with tree 1151 across the road.|
