Evergreen skinny fence line plant

Evergreen skinny fence line plant

Hi

I am trying to choose an evergreen tree that is narrow and not extremely high for a small garden area.  I have spotted a tree in my neighbourhood but have no idea what it is called but it would be ideal.  They have been planted in a row of three and it is evergreen.  They are approximately 40 - 60cm wide with lots of leaves formed on small branches and approximately 4 - 5 meters high, green leaves and a few marone leaves through it. Would anyone be able to help or advise a type of leafy tree that would come close.

Thanks

Jen

Not 100% sure but some kind of fig tree, by the leaves...apparently there is a new app. Out now that you can point, shoot & it will come up with the name Its found thru iTunes... I've been told! So, good luck

Would a fig grow that tall and skinny @cmoorehardy?

Hi @Jen,

 

Thanks for uploading the photos. I have merged your latest post with the existing discussion so that others can more easily follow the conversation. 

 

I hope community members like @CathD and @QuailFlock will now be able to assist you with identifying the tree.
