Default Conifer identification

I have a slow growing conifer tree in my back garden which is being blamed
for subsidence, how do I identify it to find more information about this
particular species.

Regards Paul

looks like Lawsons Cypress to me


Mind you given the volume of ivy I will bet that is the cause of subsidence
never mind mortar damage

What height is it and how long has it been there?

I don't think that even the immature foliage of Lawson's Cypress is as
spiky as this one. It might be a Juniper of some kind.
Juniperus communis 'Hibernica' (Irish Juniper) is quite upright and is
also slow-growing.

I'd be surprised if it would cause subsidence though.

It's definitely not a Lawsons cypress. Foliage is completely wrong, and
so is the shape of the tree. And needless to say, it certainly isn't a
leylandi either
