Moved to new home and found this tree planted just one metre away from a Sweetgum tree, with a large Photinia in between and under power lines. Needless to say it couldn't stay there. Option was to cut it down or dig it up and see if it survives, no time to root prunes as building a wall this winter.

Not sure if its something like a Cedrus deodara 'Karl Fuchs' or a Spruce? It has a slightly drooping habit, coloured blue, silver, green and yellow. Stands about 11ft tall, was planted in heavy clay, east aspect in Essex. You can see most of its growth was on its North side as its south side was crowded by the Photinia & Sweetgum

Re: Cedrus or Picea?


Looks like a cedrus, whether deodora or Atlantica not sure, you can always tell a cedrus from the clusters of needles attached at one point, so sad that people don't realize how much space these plants need, give it a good home.
