In the Plants of Arizona book, C. glabra & C. arizonicus are two different species. Here is the description for C. glabra (Smooth-bark Arizona Cypress):
The Usual height of this tree is up to 40 ft., but can reach a maximum of 90 ft. and the trunk is usually up to 2 ft. thick but can reach a maximum of 5.5 ft. in diameter.
The bark texture is variable but when it is shed, the dark, smooth, reddish inner bark is exposed.
The hard, woody & reddish brown cones have wedge shaped scales that have a point in the middle and are about 1 inch in diameter. They open up when they mature and remain on the tree for some years.
The thick, pointed & resinous leaves are pale blueish green and scalelike.
This evergreens' crown is either conical or rounded and grows in canyons and in slopes in the range of 3500 to 5500 ft elevation. It can be found north of Payson, AZ amongst other places.
It is native to AZ, CA, NM, NV, TX, UT in the USA.
The Arizona Cypress (Cupressus arizonica) is very similar but has rough bark and occurs in southern and southeastern Arizona.

The most beautiful conifer I've seen, steely blue foliage on tight branches, fast grower - from 4 ft to 12 ft in 4 years. It's about 8 ft wide. It receives full sun and gets regular watering from the sprinkler system, but needs only occasional water.
It can take heat up to 100 degree F and holds up to ice rain and occasional snow with temperatures down to 20 degree F in North Texas.

My three Arizona cypresses have now survived a hard winter here in the Pacific Northwest (snow, ice, wind and extended sub-freezing temps) with no sign of problems. They've grown from 1-gallon saplings to twelve-foot pyramids in just five years. Admired by everyone in my urban setting, they form the anchor of a blue-toned garden, and are spectacular in moonlight.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Fort Collins, Colorado
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Elephant Butte, New Mexico
Dalworthington Gardens, Texas
San Antonio, Texas (2 reports)
Shady Shores, Texas
