Keep or Remove Leyland Cypress?

Hi Anne,

I have a staggered row of green giant arborvitae as a privacy border which I planted last fall and they are doing very well. I recently purchased two leyland cypress and planted them next to the green giants. My question is, since Leyland cypress are prone to certain diseases, can they transmit this disease to the green giants? Right now the Leylands are healthy. Should I remove the Leylands and replace them with Green giants? Thanks for your help.

Anne's response:

Many Leyland Cypress will live without any problems. I would not make any changes until you have a problem.
