    I believe this is a Chamaecyparis of some sort in East Vancouver, but I can't figure out what the species is... It's quite small though it is mature. The cones look a little like thyoides, but the foliage looks more pendulous in this tree than in photos I've found of that species. Does anyone know what this is?

    Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Filifera'. Or if it looks to have been a yellow form earlier in life then 'Filifera Aurea' for instance (there is more than one).

    Thanks Ron B - that's it. I didn't realize how much more slowly they grow than the species.
