|Botanical Name||Cupressus macrocarpa|
|Common Name||Monterey Cypress|
|Notes||Like so many of the mature Monterey Cypress trees in the town, this one has had its top removed, if left to nature this tree would probably be at least 5m (15ft) taller.|
Native to California, these fast growing conifers first arrived in England in 1847. Experiments with hybrids led to a cross between the Monterey and Nootka Cypresses producing a fast growing and robust hedge tree, the dreaded Leylandii.
