I am considering a Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Gracilis' in my landscape to be placed on the east side of our home near a driveway. This is a specimen type shrub/tree that is slow growing to about 8-12 ft high. It will replace a large pine that attracted birds, and we still want that morning bird singing near our house. I can get a 7 ft. tall Gracilis; will it attract birds like the pine did? some? not at all? or what? If that specimen doesn't work, do you have a recommendation for an 8-12 ft tall, 4-5 ft wide speciment type that will attract birds. Thank you.

According to the Audubon Society, Chamaecyparis 'Gracilis' is used by birds for food and nesting. It should be an excellent addition to your landscape. Give the birds a chance to discover your new tree and they should move right in. Enjoy!
