What tree is this?

Sorry for the lousy quality, but does anyone know what tree this is exactly?

    Impossible to ID from that distance ; any possibility of a closer shot????

    Hello robatworkuk. The tree looks as if it could be a spruce but as Paul B3 asks, a closer picture would help in identification.

  • Sorry that's all I have, and can't get more as it was a visit to someone's garden. Any speculation welcome - I will google some spruces, thanks.

    Is the 'top-growth' in the right-hand picture possibly a more distant tree ????
    Looking at the left-hand picture the growth manner seems to resemble Pinus mugo , and I can't detect any of the background tree either .
    Very indistinct and hard to tell , but hope of some use to you !

    I'd say  Pine not Spruce.
  • Thanks HF.

    Having spent a few hours googling spruces and similar, I really like the Blue Spruce. I know this isn't one, but are there varieties of Blue Spruce that grow to about 5m high and spread no more than 2m?
  • That's a beauty yes. My wife has also mentioned her love of Cedar - are there any varieties of those that grow to a similar height (5-10m)?
    many thanks for your advice!

    As per Paul B3 link. Look for the word fastigiate in the names or search as that means narrow erect growth.
    Cedrus fastigiate   brings up a few. If you add the height you want you might fine one she likes. 
  • Thanks Ruby. I knew I should have stuck with Latin at school!
