Sorry for taking so long to come back Greengage. I am going to attach another photo. The plant is quite small. About 2 foot.

Where was pic taken?
It looks a little like Wollemia nobilis...Wollemy pine.
But I don't think the owner would let the brambles grow near it.

Any chance of a pic to show a good close up of the back of the needles?

Oh dear. Sorry Silver surfer. It's actually in my garden. I only noticed it this year. I must get rid of those brambles. Really need to tidy up that area.

I will get some more pics tomorrow.

Thanks again,

Bill

Thanks for new pics.
I feel if it was Wollemia nobilis...Wollemy pine you would have remember it.
It would have been very expensive.
It was only discovered in 1994 and to protect it they propagated it and charge extra to go towards it's conservation in the future
Quote wiki...
Wollemia is a genus of coniferous tree in the family Araucariaceae. Wollemia was only known through fossil records until the Australian species Wollemia nobilis was discovered in 1994 in a temperate rainforest wilderness area of the Wollemi National Park in New South Wales, in a remote series of narrow, steep-sided sandstone gorges 150 km north-west of Sydney. The genus is named for the National Park.[2]

In both botanical and popular literature the tree has been almost universally referred to as the Wollemi pine, although it is not a true pine (genus Pinus) nor a member of the pine family (Pinaceae), but, rather, is related to Agathis and Araucaria in the family Araucariaceae. The oldest fossil of the Wollemi tree has been dated to 200 million years ago.[3]

The Wollemi pine is classified as critically endangered (CR) on the IUCN's Red List,[1] and is legally protected in Australia.[4] A Recovery Plan has been drawn up, outlining strategies for the management of this fragile population; the overall objective is to ensure that this species remains viable in the long term

Back of needles paler in colour...so think we can rule that out.

:........................................................................................................................

Cunninghamia lanceolate....it is not as this has silver on the back of the needles.

Thanks everybody.

I guess I'll just keep an eye on it for a while.

Will probably need to move it if it's that big in the autumn.

Don't think so.
Foliage of Sequoiadendron giganteum..giant redwood is very ferny and delicate.
