What is this?

I’ve been trying to find the name of this tree. Can anyone help?

    Sadly image not clear enough to be sure what tree it is.
    Any chance of clear close up of the leaves/needles.

    Possibly a Larch. The colour is very different in the 2 photos though. Which is more accurate?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • The second photo is the most accurate

    Last pic shows a conifer with blue needles.
    Nothing appears similar to  1st pic...which appears golden/light in colour.

    Last pic looks like Cedrus atlantica Glauca group.
    If it is it, will grow into a big tree and is therefore far too close to the house and the foundations.'Glauca'_Needles_3008px.JPG

    Looks a little like Cedrus atlantica Glauca... hope not, because it's impossibly close to the house... and grows 40-60m tall, though slowly.

  • I doubt the later as our neighbor has had it for 6 years since house has been built and had grown very slowly not requiring any trimming. 

    Thanks to all for your help!

    They are not fast growers like leylandii.  It will take 20 to 50 years to get to those 12 metres or more so best to shift it now before it upends the house walls.
