|Botanical Name||Cupressus macrocarpa|
|Common Name||Monterey Cypress|
|Notes||These two conifers are battling for light and the Monterey Cypress is winning with its spreading habit swamping the Lawson's Cypress. The fast growing conifers were introduced from California in mid-Victorian times and became great favourites with Sidmouth gardeners. Hopefully this one will have room to grow to its full height as many of the older trees around town have been topped to keep them in check and this spoils their shape.|
