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 – kevinskio 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.
