Don't forget the Chamaecyparis in your landscaping plans! A very old native of Japan, the name is derived from khamai, meaning "on the ground" due to its dwarf nature, and kuparissos meaning cypress. They make beautiful small specimen trees or can be arranged into a hedge. Most cultivars in NZ only grow to around 1-4m tall, but some like the original obtusa will grow 30+ meters tall and was one of Japan's most valuable timber trees. Chamaecyparis are available on request
