The article discusses the author's experience of planting cypresses. The author faced a dilemma in controlling branch size in the shelterbelt, so when it came to pruning, these larger branches were a problem. He thinks the variation and mixes of cypresses has improved over the years from improved breeding and genetics. To control branching, the author inter-planted with radiata at 550 stems per hectare.
