This article reports that a growing number of hybrid cypresses are being planted by farm foresters in New Zealand. Leyland cypress or the variety Leighton Green has been very widely planted in shelterbelts throughout New Zealand since the 1970s. Leylands clones such as Ferndown, Stapehill, Green Spire and Haggerston Grey have replaced Leighton Green as the varieties of choice for planting. The hybrid Ovens cypress is a relatively recent addition to the cypress mix of species and clones available to growers, one that is very resistant to cypress canker.
