Put this up again in the plant ID thread and Silver Surfer will tell you quick enough. It is the only thread that she looks at. Will probably want a picture of the trunk too. Conifers can be a nightmare to ID as there are so many that are similar.

I concur. The leaves aren't long enough for C. leylandii "Castlewellan Gold". My bet is on C. macrocarpa "Goldcrest".

I really hate iding conifers from a general pic.
Smell comes into it and all the detail ...needles, cones, bark, tree shape etc.

I seem to remember beating SS to naming a Macrocarpa not too many weeks ago. Still living on the rush!!!! Monterey Cypress. I should have said it in my first comment for the craic just in case it was right. I didn't because so many conifers are similar.
