Who is an arborist? Question about evergreen tree in my backyard
I have tree in my back yard. It stands about 15 feet high or so. It never loses it's leaves in the winter and I am confused because there are only supposed to be 4 types of trees that stay green on the winter: False Cypress, Pine, Spruce and Hemlock. I have looked up pictures of these trees and they are not the tree that is in my backyard.

This is the tree a few winters ago...if you all really need me to I could go back out tomorrow and take a close up of it, but was wondering if anyone could identify it from this picture.

Thanks!

Zoom in. Does it have needles or leaves?

Yes, you will need to really zoom in on the tree for any identification.

I disagree with your assessment of only four types of trees as being evergreen. Perhaps it is so in your area, but there are hundreds of types of trees that are evergreen.

As far as native conifers alone you can add cedar, arborvitae, yew, larch, fir, redwood, sequoia, etc., plus inumerable broad leaf trees grow in more temperate American climates.

It looks like that horrible English ivy is taking over one of the neighbors trees.

Cannot tell, way too far away...what is the issue? So maybe we don't need to identify the tree...or something else going on?

Yes I know...that is why I said tomorrow I would run out there and take another picture close up if need be. But not a holly, the leaves have smooth edges.

Re: Who is an arborist? Question about evergreen tree in my backyard
maybe a rhodie, laurel or magnolia?
does it flower?
Do the leaves change markedly when it drops below freezing?

Nothing is wrong or anything, but living in Ohio I wouldn't expect a tree like that to be in my backyard in the winter with leaves.

It looks like a Laurel tree from the pics I get off google. The leaves look the same and they flower just like that in the summer. Thanks!
