    Hello,
    I’m wondering if anyone can help me identify a tree that makes these ‘cone roses’.
    It’s a tall conifer, needles not scales and has a soft slightly droopy appearance.
    The cones sit on top of the branches like candle holders and the picture is of one picked off; it’s not decayed, they start out like that.
    It could be from anywhere, we also have a redwood and a cucumber tree which are not exactly native to Lincolnshire, uk.
    Any ideas gratefully received!

    Maybe a Cunninghamia cone?

    Rose is top part of a Cedrus cone, foliage description sounds like C. deodara.

    Thank you both very much, the tree certainly looks like deodara, the cone shape didn’t look like anything I could find online but I guess if it’s broken that makes sense!
    Thank you both again
