It all depends on how, where and when it was planted and how well it's cared for. Impossible question to answer. You can't just plant it and leave it. Even very established trees suffered and/or died during this last summer.
I understand what you're saying, both trees would have died.
I was just curious as to which was hardier under the conditions of a concrete jungle rather than beside a pond or creek like where I would expect to see them.
I have a pond that I would like to plant a couple of cypress trees but the little pond dried up this year. I cleaned it out and made it deeper by removing probably 50 yards of soil but in the event we have another severe summer like we just did, I'd like to have the "hardiest" cypress.
