Somebody saw this tree in a park (in Galicia, in northwestern Spain) and asked me to try and identify it. Here are 3 photos of the tree (click on each to enlarge):

also do you see any cones... and how many needles per bunch? –  Grady Player May 11 '12 at 22:09
A pine, possibly a white pine, but hard to say without a closeup of the needles and it's location –  kevinsky May 11 '12 at 22:28
I don't remember seeing any cones, either in the tree or in the floor, and I don't have any more info about the needles that it's not on the picture. I'm sorry I don't have more details. Anyway, I was searching and the leaves looked similar, could it be Cedrus deodara? –  JHM May 11 '12 at 23:16
Pinus radiata (Monterey Pine)? –  Ed Staub May 12 '12 at 2:27
@EdStaub: I don't think so. Look at the needles. –  JHM May 12 '12 at 10:56

I'm going with Cedrus deodara of some variety too — the drooping tips of the branches indicate that.

I have the same type of tree i planted in my front yard three years ago but I forgot the name of the species. I will try and check for you.

Ok it is prob cedrus deodara as that is what is in my yard and clearly matches the species feature wise –  Connor Dec 10 '12 at 4:48
