A fast-growing coniferous evergreen tree with a conical habit and flattened sprays of tinged golden-dark green foliage. Growing more that a metre in height per year, this is typically used as a residential hedge or screen. Can reach 30m in height, great for privacy, but can result in arguments with neighbours whose properties quickly become overshadowed by a thick, green wall!
