Description

The horizontal cypress (Cupressus sempervirens var. horizontalis)is an evergreen tree in the family Cupressaceae. It is common around the Mediterranean basin, where its height can reach up to 35 m (115 ft). Its dense, rot-resistant wood makes it a choice species for cabinetwork.

The shape of the horizontal cypress is somewhat similar to that of a cedar, and can be used as a visual image to distinguish it from the pyramidal cypress. They are usually considered two different cultivars of a same species: the Mediterranean cypress.
