What's this plant? 7

Is it some kind of Juniper?




Doesn't look like a juniper, it could be a Leyland Cypress, Lawson Cypress, False Cypress or one of many others.
Could we have a closer photo of the trunk, leaves and especially any cones. Cones are often the only way to identify these type of trees.
Is it growing in the ground or in a pot, how old is it and how tall is it?

I've never seen any cones on the tree, it's about 2/3m tall, it's growing in the ground, no idea how old it is.

WIll try to post a pic of trunk/ leaves soon.

But I looked up Leyland Cypress on Google Images and it's pretty much the same

It's gonna be a big tree!

I can't really remember it growing, either - always been squished up against the fence, never loses its leaves, always has the doves nesting in it...

I hope its not too close to the house! You don't want roots undermining the foundations.

Don't worry, it's not even in our backyard
