Thanks, Katy...

...and while you're out there, could you please have a look for any cones? They will probably be quite small, but a good photo (or two) of one would be helpful.

Here's a tip, btw - if you take a small branchlet (about 1" of newest growth) and hold it up to the light, can you see transparent round or oval sections? If so, they are resin glands, and if you can see them - you might need to look through a hand lens - then this might confirm the ID as Lawson Cypress.
