Hi All, A few weeks ago half of our tree feel down in strong winds. We would like to replace the exposed area with a second, identical tree and prune to match. Can you please help me to identify the tree. Thank you.

Looks like a Bay Laurel to me.

Hi It's Pittosporum tenuifolium. Most people grow it as a large shrub, but given enough time it forms a really great evergreen tree!

Sorry to hear it got damaged. Might be worth reshaping the whole plant and letting it regrow as a whole. Prune after the worst of the frosts have passed, but not too late into the spring or you'll miss that first bit of regrowth!

Hope that helps.
