Cunninghamia lanceolata, I think

last month

This stately tree resides in an empty lot nearby. I fear it will be removed when the lot is developed. Does everyone agree that it's a Cunninghamia lanceolata?

    yes. Definitely Cunninghamia lanceolata.

    If you grabbed foliage, squeezed, and said "Ouch!" - then you've provided additional direct confirmation of this plant's identity.

    Where is this plant growing?

    It's just outside of Atlanta, GA. Zone 7b.

    davidrt, I saw a 60' cryptomeria in Williamsport, MD that was browned and looked absolutely haggard. Years later I drove by the same spot and was amazed at how much it had recovered -- looked like a new tree. That rarely happens w/conifers.
