A very fast-growing, tall tree with feathery green yellowish dense foliage hides much of the trunk. The bark is red-gray with ridges, and twigs are slender, brown and flexible. It has scale-like, soft and overlapping leaves form in flat sprays on long stalks. Flowers of the leyland cypress are small and brown ball-shaped cones and each scale has a central spine.
