My niece lives in Long Island. She has a weeping evergreen next to her house that was there when she bought the place. She asked me if I could identified it. It has needles in clumps just like a Larch (Tamarack). However, the Larch I know loose their needles in winter. This plant still has green needles as I speak. Any ideas?

Is it tall? Could be a blue atlas cedar.

It's a weeping form and it crawls around with a terrible shape. She wants to chop it down, but the neighbors tell her "Oh, no! Those are very expensive."

I looked up some photos and that looks a lot like it.

If it's crawling around I'd kill it before it hurts someone. Not what the tree huggers want to hear but a guy can't be too careful.  :smilewink:

Do you think a 30-06 is enough for an Atlas Cedar . . . or should I borrow a 45-70?

You see my niece's problem was when the tree took a run and cut across the sidewalk to her front door. She had to chop it off there, and it only looks worse.

About 6 sticks of dynamite should do the trick!

I'd say be safe, grab the 45-70, the dynamite, and deploy them from a Cat D5 dozer!

I'm glad none of you own a landscaping company! I'd had to see what you would do to any weeds! :)

The dynamite aught to do the trick. Looks like a cross between Hallowe'en and a nuclear experiment gone wrong. Gotta love gmo. The strange looks would probably grow on a person after a while though.        Pun intended.

Kind of creepy looking.  Like something from the blue lagoon.

I'd say, "it's free for you.....you got a week to take it!" lol.

 

You see them out east a lot on LI. Didn't know their name, so I learned that. Not to my taste, but each his own.
