Leyland Cypress

Vale of Glamorgan, United Kingdom Gb

Will the bare side of a tree which was part of a hedge of C.Leylandii ever recover its foliage on the side previously adjacent to its neighbour?

On plant Cupressocyparis Leylandii



They don't usually, if that side has died. When this species has been cut back into old wood, it doesn't shoot again, and this is a similar situation, I'm afraid.

In a word - no. One option to cover the dead growth is to plant a climber (not too close because of the tree roots) and train it over the brown parts
