We are in the process of landscaping the front beds and I am looking for a "special" tree. I don't know what it is by apparently a lot of landscapers are fond of it as I see it in a lot of yards. I appears to be a pine or some kind of blue spruce, but it does not grow straight up like your normal tree, it "meanders" and as my teenage daughter would say, "looks funky" and is roughly about four feet tall. Can you help???

You may be thinking of weeping blue atlas cedar, a form of Cedrus atlantica. Do keep in mind that these trees require attention to pruning and staking when young and do eventually grow to quite a large size.
