    Hi-
    I'm sure this will be an obvious one for Pacific Northwest folks. I always get my conifers confused! Can anyone help identify these trees?

    Thank you in advance!!

    Pic 1 looks like Blue Spruce
    Pic 2 looks like Common Douglas-fir

    Some close-ups of the foliage would help confirm

    Thank you! I added a few more photos, unfortunately I don' have any good ones with close up foliage and it is quite far away from my house. Also, I am wondering the evergreen trees on the side hillside but my photo captures trunks more than foliage : (

    Thank you for any help!

    Thanks! Pics 3-4 are more Common Douglas-fir, while pics 5-6 are Scots Pines.
