HISTORY

The Cypress tree has a long been held in high esteem, in fact the island of Cypress was so named as the tree was worshiped there. The tree was traditionally planted in Greek and Roman Graveyards and it is said that Jesus' cross was made from it's wood. The botanical name comes from the greek word 'sempervivens'; meaning 'live forever'.
