Black Cypress Pine


Callitris endlicheri, also known as the Black Cypress Pine, is a hardy evergreen conifer native to Australia. It is a drought-tolerant plant that can grow to a height of 6 to 12 meters with a spread of 3 to 5 meters. The tree has a narrow, conical shape with dark green leaves and a rough bark.

The tree prefers well-draining soils with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5 but can also tolerate a wide range of soil types, including sandy, clay, and loamy soils. It prefers a sunny location and is tolerant of salt, making it a good choice for coastal or seaside planting.

When growing Callitris endlicheri, it is important to plant it in an area with full sun exposure. The tree is drought-tolerant but will grow more quickly and vigorously with regular watering, especially during its first year of growth.

Callitris endlicheri can be pruned to shape, but it is best to prune it when it is young to maintain a desired shape. It can also be trimmed to make a hedge.

This tree is considered a low-maintenance plant, but it is vulnerable to pests such as the cypress tip moth, which can cause the tree’s new growth to become distorted. Keep an eye out for any signs of infestation, and treat with an appropriate pesticide if necessary.
