I have a big evergreen in my backyard and am unable to tell what it is since it has always been pruned into an oval shape. I am thinking it is either a green giant arborvitae or a leyland cypress but unsure. I love this tree but may have to get rid of it to expand the patio and would like to purchase another of the same.

If those are little flowers on some of the branch tips, its a Leyland Cypress.
