A Challenge for You!

Eh Up garden braniacs! Is there any chance someone can find out what this tree is? Its almost Yew like, but much greener in colour. Its tall and thin, with waxy fern like leaves. most odd - and both sets of parents, and keen gardeners cant seem to tell me what it is! 

See attached shots!!

    Looks like a fastigiate yew. There are some Yews that will grow as a column.

    I would cut the black tie wrap off the cane. It will damage the trunk. Use a proper tree tie that can be loosened off if it still needs support.

    That's what it looks like to me. It's got a softer look than yew and the bark is different

    I have 2 metasequoias. They grew quickly in the early stages but I shall have to do a rescue hack of other trees if I want to keep themimage

    I used to have three, Five germinated but I gave the other two away. I like them but I think maybe tough natives  are what my garden needs.

    Field Maple and Scots Pines are the stars here, a bit dry for birch, they go brown in a dry summer
