|Botanical Name||Chamaecyparis lawsoniana|
|Common Name||Lawson's Cypress|
|Notes||These two conifers are battling for space and light and the Lawson's Cypress is losing out to the spreading Monterey Cypress next door. If it had space, this tree could grow to more than 40m (130ft). Introduced from California in mid-Victorian times, these fast growing trees were popular with gardeners and there are many around the town but some of them have outgrown their site.|
