This grower is sure of this plant identification.

These trees were planted in 1989 and require a digger to lift them from the ground in Autumn/Winter. They are around 1.5m wide and 2m high and make a fabulous readymade screen. The pot size (right) is only a very rough indication of what would be needed to accommodate the rootball.
