Identify This Tree?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I have 2 of these trees in my back yard. They do very very well. The Blue Spruce that I have died so I would like to replace them with the tree in the photo. Can anyone identify the type of tree it is? There are 2 trees very close to each other. I am looking to identify the taller pine tree with the light colored tips. The one furthest in the pic. Thanks

Ayuh,... The last pic, the close up, appears to be a Cedar....

'course it's hard as 'ell to tell with the sideways pictures....

After twisting my neck,I would say some kind of cedar also.

Not sure why they came out sideways. I wish I knew what type of cedar so I could buy some more in spring. Maybe the nursery will know

whatever you do, don't put your location in your profile.

I agree with the Cedar...A closeup of the greens and your location would help.

Red cedar is very common to the eastern U.S.

Ayuh,.... Red cedar is native to the West,...
It's a Popular ornamental in the east...

Native cedars in the Northeast are generally White cedar...

While talking to Keith (coco) up in BC I found out there is a red cedar up there but their red cedar is different from our red cedar.

The pictures above look like a type of cypress, not all cypress grow in the water. This doesn't look like the cedars we have here in Tennessee.

Forestryimages.org provides several images of parts of Eastern redcedar. The tree is a conifer and the lineal taxonomy is Pinopsida > Pinales > Cupressaceae > Juniperus virginiana L. Eastern Redcedar is also commonly called southern juniper, southern red cedar and cedar.
The Range of Eastern Redcedar

http://0.tqn.com/d/forestry/1/6/B/o/cedar_range.jpgUSGS/Little
Eastern redcedar is the most widely distributed conifer of tree size in the Eastern United States and is found in every State east of the 100th meridian. The species extends northward into southern Ontario and the southern tip of Quebec. The range of eastern redcedar has been considerably extended, especially in the Great Plains, by natural regeneration from planted trees.


Yeah,there's quite a number of Cedars out there.

My first thought was Cyprus----I am not a tree expert---Cyprus is a good looking ornamental.
