I’m influenced by this. It looks a great deal like what several of us call a North white cedar (Thuja occidentalis). Or you could recognize it as the American Arborvitae. It’s all over right here in north Vermont and also among our couple of neighborhood varieties that makes wonderful bonsai. When it was dug, I question where this one is from and also what it looked like.
