How To Care

Be sure to choose the best location for your Carolina Sapphire Arizona Cypress. As long as you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant this tree almost any time of the year.

They thrive in full sun to part sun and can adapt to any soil that is well drained. They do like a neutral to acidic soil so if you know you have an alkaline soil choose an acidic fertilizer (most fertilizers for evergreens are acidic). After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist and cool. Mulch can also protect the roots during cold temperatures. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your Cypress deeply a couple times a week for the first few months. After your tree is established, they only need watered during hot, dry spells. Fertilize when planting and in early spring yearly with a slow release fertilizer. When planting be sure to mix the fertilizer into the ground soil well before placing your new plant in the hole to prevent fertilizer burn. These trees rarely need pruning.

Rarely encounters issues with pests or disease. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. It is important to avoid saturated soils to prevent fungal issues.

Fast and Good

I really love this company. Although I have only used them twice, each time a lot of care was put into packaging and sending my trees. The first set I bought were smaller to see how well they did, and then I bought 4 of the same trees in the larger size. Got them in great shape and very fast.

Sapphire Cypress Trees

The trees were nice size and overall your support was excellent. You sent them promptly and strongly stood by your product. If you had packaged my ten trees more securely in the first order so that they didn't shift and impact each other during transit then I would have given you an excellent rating. I was favorably impressed that the three replacement trees you sent me were more securely packaged and came undamaged.

Love the trees and the total experience. They came on time and in great condition, with the size being what we expected. The packaging was the best with no damage at all. Can't wait to watch them grow.
