GYMNOSPERMS FORTNIGHT :: Cunnighamia sp. from HPU, Shimla-NS 01 : Attachments (5). 6 posts by 3 authors. 
This large tree was shot from campus of Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla..
I was told this is Cunninghamia chinensis.. wanted to get validating/correcting remarks..
Perhaps this is an uncommon gymnosperm..
For me it is Cunninghamia chinensis too. 
It is a planted tree. Not so common but grows very well above 3000ft elevations. Very old trees are there in Sikkim, Kodaikanal, Yercaud etc

Pine Tree For ID : Bhimtal,Uttarakhand : 270413 : AK-2 : Attachments (6). 4 posts by 2 authors.
A small, cultivated Pine tree seen at a resort in Bhimtal on 23/3/13.
Araucaria species?
Kindly confirm.
It is Auraucaria sp. but not aware with introduced flora around Naini Tal. Seeing the leaf it may be A.bidwilii, the Bunya-Bunya tree. Not sure.
Thanks ... for the id.
I was also thinking it to be the same but wanted confirmation.
Have posted earlier on our group from Lalbagh, Bangalore.
Cunninghamia lanceolata as per another thread.
 
A cultivated, young tree seen at a resort in Bhimtal, Uttarakhand on 23/3/13.
... had suggested Araucaria bidwilii, when posted on our group earlier.
Kindly validate.
This should be Araucaria bidwillii.
It seems to be Cunninghamia lanceolata
Yeah it should be. My apologies for the wrong ID. Bidwillii will have shorter leaves I assume.
