Thanks. It caused an allergic reaction I wasn't expecting!

Can't say for sure, it looks like Cupressus sempervirens.

Are there any additional photos I could take for you to be positive?

I do appreciate your help.

I doubt it Arlene, I don't know my conifers that well! Hilarious!

There are other Cupressus species but none I have seen have those small nobbly ends as you can see in the photos, also this drawing ..

I grew seeds of a supposed Cupressus cashmeriana years ago, the plants look like Cupressus sempervirens. I let all but two go to tree heaven, now I have one which survives in a pot because it wants to and not through my care as I have nowhere to put it. Both plants made the bigger seed pods so I'm guessing the small nobbly things are male flowers.

Thank you so much. I planted it as a one inch seedling, obviously a bird gift.

Now I know that it's a cypress that causes this very ugly rash.

Definitely not a chamaecyparis of any kind. Most likely a Cupressus (cypress) of some kind. Any berries or cones?
