What Is This Tree?

We saw these trees on our trip to California. I just love them. They are much more interesting to me than the typical evergreen "screen" trees you see around here! But what are they?

This looks like Italian cypress. Height 30-40 ft. An unusually narrow and columnar tree with dense dark green foliage. Very formal profilt. Plants with multiple leaders make interesting irregular specimens. Zone 8

They are pencil pines - I do not know their botanical name - they are very common in Australia

They are Italian Cypress. We had them in our yard when we lived in California.

Cypress is the type, and Sky Pencil is the variety.

They look lovely now, but they will surely split down the middle and decay then from the middle.
