I don't think this is a blue Cedar, Bernard. It looks like Chamaecyparis lawsoniana 'Columnaris' (or 'Columnaris Glauca'). If you google image the name you can check.

Thanks for your input Vincent. I'm slightly uncertain because the pictures on the web aren't that brilliant, the leaves on my tree seem to lie more horizontally, although they are a bit more vertical at the top. I've taken a photo of the leaves of mine and posted it on my home page in 'Garden' with the title C. lawsoniana 'Columnaris' leaf detail. Perhaps if you can find it you might like to comment on this. If it makes you more certain you are right, that's fine by me.
