Question:
Hello. I am interested in finding out about the roots of the Italian Cypress. Do the roots grow vertically, horizontally, or both? I am particularly interested on how these trees, if planted within 1-2 feet away from concrete will affect the driveway when they grow older. Please let me know where I can find this type of information about this tree.
