Looking for a stunning specimen tree to add to your garden? Consider the Hesperocyparis forbesii, also known as Forbe's Cypress or Tecate Cypress. Native to southwestern North America, this tree is found in montane chaparral and woodlands habitats at elevations of 450-1,500 meters. While this species suffered from a devastating wildfire in 2006, regeneration is occurring by the hundreds to thousands. This tree is also important for supporting rare wildlife, including the Thorne's Hairstreak butterfly. The Hesperocyparis forbesii is a successful specimen tree, resilient to cooler temperatures and humidity in the California Coastal climate.
