This tall, columnar, narrow, and pyramidal tree has high tolerance to drought and good salt tolerance. May be used as screen and as a strong accent in large spaces. Canker has been a serious problem on the west coast. Never can predict the length of life. Some are very long-lived and others are short-lived. Cannot tolerate heavy, poorly drained soils. Provide full sunlight. This tree is a classic tree in Italy, its native land. Provides strong punctuation in any landscape setting.
