Hello,

I am not well versed on tree species. I think juniper, cypress? No idea if that's correct, and would also like to know the exact type. Thank you.

Photos #1, #3, #4 foliage and cones remind me of Juniperus; for comparison:
Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis var. occidentalis)

Californian Juniper (Juniperus californica)

Photo #2 foliage reminds me of Auricaria species: https://garden.org/plants/sear...
For comparison, good images of foliage for Auricaria heterophylla can be seen here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... and here: https://selectree.calpoly.edu/...

Not an Araucaria. Those are little Juniper berries.

I think the key to an exact identification will be the berries. Your's seem to have little seams in them.

BTW, Junipers are in the Cypress family.

LOL, Definitely all photos of Juniperus sp. I was all backwards with this one, thinking it was two different trees. I should have enlarged the pictures; certainly looks like Juniperus and reminds me of Chinese Juniper (Juniperus chinensis) that we had in our yard when we lived in Daytona Beach:

My first though was a Hollywood Juniper that had been trimmed through the years.. Those escaping "wisps" from the structure are reminiscent of it.. The berries look right as well... but it's been years since I've had one and am relying on sometimes faulty memory Big Grin
Juniperus chinensis 'Torulosa'

Henhouse may be right. I haven't see one for years either but it does look like Hollywood Juniper
