Cedary with 5-6” Soft needles
« on: Yesterday at 09:56:11 AM »
Need help identifying. SE Connecticut, About a mile from the coast.
Cedary looking bark. Tree is about 30 feet tall, 1.5 feet diameter or so at the base. Needles are about 5 to 6 inches long very soft.

The deodar description says needles are 1-2 inches. Not sure what to make of that.

Am thinking Eastern white pine, if there are 5 needles to a bundle. Can't quite tell in the pic.

Definitely not EWP. We have loads of that around here. The needles are thin in one dimension, and 3 to 4 mm wide in the flat dimension, See the photo, and they have a yellow green stripe down the center.

I tried to count the bundles when Dennis put the photos up but it does not look like traditional typical needle bundles for what I can make out. Dennis, can you count specific bundle groups? That would help narrow it down. The group bases seem a little different also. Not EWP for sure, but I could see why you'd guess that.
 I am guessing it's size (height to diameter ratio) coupled with being coastal would lend some good clues. That is a very different microclimate.

If by bundle groups, you mean how many needles are at each juncture along the stem, I counted three of them and got 19, 21, and 26. 

These needles are very soft and smooth. For example, if you didn’t have any fig leaves, and you had to make a cloak to cover yourself up with some of these branches, For the most part, it would be quite comfortable. I wouldn’t try that with EWP boughs.

My guess is Japanese Umbrella Pine

That's the closest in my "introduced conifers" book anyway....
