I came across this tree when going for a walk last weekend.
I live in a rather cold climate. In winter we experience -10°C and less so I was suprised to find this tree that looks like it comes from some warmer climate. Anyone knows what that is?

It is Araucaria araucana (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Araucaria_araucana), commonly called the "monkey puzzle tree" in the UK (presumably because attempting to climb it would be an prickly experience).
Its native habitat is in Chile at high altitudes (above 1000m).
It is hardy down to about -20C.
