Now you tell us, I was a "tree expert" and never thought of cypress, but it was a long time ago and they were pretty rare outside of Florida.

Identify This Tree?


I love Cypress trees. I have a bunch of Hinoki and Obtusa that I recently planted. I also have a few Leyland Cypress as well. They all seem to do very well here.

I had a line of Blue Spruce along the perimeter of my property but they all started dying from the ground up. This started happening long before I bought the house 7 months ago. I am in the process of ripping them out. The tree in the pic does very well and gives more privacy then the ornamental Cypress and adds more color then the Leyland.

I was convinced it was a type of pine tree and never considered it may be a Cypress or Cedar. Now looking at the trunk I think you guys are right. I googled Cedar's but have not found any that matched the look of this tree.

Identify This Tree?


I took that pic early winter and not sure how well it shows in the pic but the ends of each branch get bright yellow during the summer. The rest of the tree stays green. This is what I love about the tree. Not sure if thats helps. I have tried googling every variation of pine/cypress/cedar and yellow tips etc. No luck so far.

Hopefully I can have better pics this weekend. Always too dark when I get home from work.

Thanks

If you live near a landscaping/ nursery center, take a picture and a sample of the tree (flower, weed etc) in and ask your questions. I work at a family-owned center and we are happy to help people with identifications. Don't bother going to the garden center of a big box store, though....you're not going to find professionals there.

Your trees look like the cypress trees we have around here (Texas) but they could also perhaps be Eastern Hemlock.

Looks like a Lawson Cypress, native to west coast.

You can always take a piece of it (or your photos) to your county extension agent. They will be able to identify it for sure.
