Q.What kind of tree is this?
A friend of mine sent me this picture of a tree that she saw in Northern Michagan. I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find out what kind of a tree it is. Can you help us identify it? Thank you. Sallie

It is, either, one of many Thuja trees, or possibly a Platycladus , but I'm leaning more towards Thuja.
