Can anyone tell me what variety of conifer this is?

Hi, I have this healthy looking conifer left over after clearing the rest of the area.  I’d like to know what variety it is as would potentially like to get others to match it.  Photos attached. Thanks.

    Tbh, all conifers look alike to me, but it's possibly a thuja.

    Looks like thuja plicata to me.
    we removed one from the garden when we moved in as it was taller than the house and sucking all the goodness from the soil around it.

    They sound nicer when you call them Western Red Cedar :smile: Mind you I always think "Leylandii" whenever I see one! I think I have some, but I'm slowly working my way through the trees and shrubs in our new garden trying to identify them ...

    The old joke was always that a "dwarf conifer" is one that will eventually dwarf the house.

    There's a interesting video on identifying Western Red Cedar here
  • Thanks for the advice everyone.
