A cypress

Cypresses prefer warm and sun-drenched locations, which is why the Celts like to call them the tree of "loyalty and resurrection". For the Celts the cypresses belonged more to the colder season and at its end as a ray of hope for brighter days.

The Italian cypress is probably the best known, whose particularly elegant growth was already highly valued by the Romans. Thanks to the milder ones, they helped it to spread as an evergreen tree over Europe and as far as England.

General qualities
