How hard is it to grow leyland pine?

I'm about to plant a few trees.


Answer by  steverino (275)

growing leyland pines is actually quite simple. They are hardy, grow quickly, require little, if any pruning, and will serve a very useful purpose as a wind break or nice ornamentals. Make sure they have sun, well drained fertile soli, and let them grow their natural shape. They manage with acidic or alkaline soil as well.

In the right conditions a Leyland pine will grow really well. If you are planting them in the ground make sure your soil is well prepared. If you are planting your Leyland pine in a pot make sure it is a good size pot. A one gallon stock pot usually works well.

Leland Pine is generally a hard tree to grow because it doesn't have very strong roots. Also they are gigantic when grown. For any sickness, prune it back.

They are easy trees. But they grow slowly and very large. Make sure you really want pine trees before you make the commitment to them. Once they are established, don't give them too much water.

Leyland Pines are one of the easest trees to grow. The best time to plant is early spring. When planting make sure you dig a big hole for the roots and add a little fertilizer to soil and make sure you keep it watered for the first month or so.
