A sometimes eternal optimist
That’s a Leyland Cypress IMO. A lot of people confuse them with Western red cedar. Could also be an incense cedar as was mentioned earlier, but in this area there are a lot of Leyland’s planted In the wrong place because people buy them at Home Depot and have no idea how big they get. Also agree, 6 days to cut that thing down is a joke.
Sorry about your experience though, to remove a tree like that with no notice is a crock.
I was looking online bconrad and Leyland Cypress don’t seem to have the kind of trunk that this one does. It’s not blue green or pyramid shaped.
