Lawson's Cypress (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana) Tree up to 60-70 m. tall, with a narrow cone-shaped, downward-expanding crown, with a narrow tip, usually tilted to one side. With free standing, the branches can fall to the ground (with poor care, improper or too dense planting, mismatch of environmental conditions, the crown dries and is exposed from below). The bark is thick, reddish-brown, cracking into rounded plates. The needles are shiny green above, with indistinct white stomatal stripes at the base of the leaves below. Planar leaves 1.8—2 mm long, 1-1. 5 mm wide,obtuse, on the back without a keel, usually with a gland. The lateral leaves are strongly compressed and almost twice as long. The cones are ovoid-spherical, 8-10 mm in diameter, light brown, often with a slight bluish coating. The scales are 8-10 in number, with a concave, strongly wrinkled surface. Seeds of 2(-3), on both surfaces with two large resin glands. Introduced into culture in 1854. At the age of 20-25 years, it reaches the size of a small tree up to 3-5 m high, forms cones and germinating seeds.
