Hello Guys. I am back once again to you looking for information on those Trees this time. I got those of a friend, and i was wondering what are the names of those, also how big will the grow or are the slow growing. They Foliage is gone a bit brown on them, do you think is that a problem ?

I'm sure someone else more qualified will reply to you, but to me they look like leylandii ( type of cypress ) and I'm not sure I would introduce them into your garden unless you have acres of space. They grow very quickly and become huge trees.....and cause disputes between neighbours !

They look like Thuja to me, pull some leaves and smell they should smell like pineapple, if they have a white tinge to the ends they could either be damaged by wind although there is a variety called I think arborvitae

Some would classify them as a weed!

Hi Guys, Thanks for the reply's, so it looks like i have Leylandii, There is no smell of Pineapple of them, and yes they seem to have more Silver/ White Tinge on them than Green. I just Posted 2 more Pics, a little bit more close-up of them. Once again many thanks for all your help.
