Is this the Pencil Pine, variety 'Glauca' or 'Stricta' ?
Cultivated, garden plant seen in Sacramento on the 7th Oct,14.

upright conifers  take a bit of on site study unless one is a horticulturist who deals with them everyday.
one is never sure if its natural growth habit of that particular tree or is it a creation started by a skillful cutting and allowed to grow in that shape, not only in gardens but in public places. at least that's what I have found to my utter dismay when some of my family and friends were very sure of id with a guidebook in their hands...
