This is one of the tallest trees growing in Reno (Plumb Lane median), topping out at over 100 feet. It has a pyramidal silhouette growing 25 ft. wide at the base and narrowing to a point at the top. This evergreen is best grown in dry, well-drained soil and watered deeply every two weeks. This tree must be watered once a month through the winter or the foliage burns on the side facing the prevailing wind. In the worst winters (below zero), lack of water may also contribute to its death. Plant in full sun, but this tree is temperature sensitive. Not a disease prone tree, and does not need protection.
