Full view of a pyramidal cypress (Cupressus sempervirens var. pyramidalis), an evergreen tree of the Cupressaceae family common around the Mediterranean basin, where it is frequently found as ornaments in graveyards. It can grow up to 115 ft. (35 m) tall and its hard, rot-resistant wood makes it a good species for cabinetwork.
The pyramidal cypress has a slender, conical shape which helps to distinguish it from the horizontal cypress, although they are usually considered to be two different cultivars of a same species: the Mediterranean cypress. It is said to regulate venous circulation.
