Cupressus sempervirens (Real Jardín Botánico)

Aside from the characteristics of the species, this specimen of cypress has a conical shape, with multiple branches that begin at the base itself. It has reached a height of thirty-two metres with a crown diameter of seven and a trunk perimeter of four metres five centimetres. It is estimated to be two hundred years old, and is thought to be one of the original trees that were planted in the garden at the end of the 18th century, explaining the name by which it is known: “El Abuelo” or the grandfather.
