    Its the one on the left hand side, any info would be great. I found it on google but no name, and I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Hard to tell. The leaves kinda resemble fig or sassafras. when I zoom in it gets blurry on me.

    I know it stays slender and upright, I've seen it used for screening and hedging. I'll take the picture to a nursery and see if they know.

    Local,
    Not slamming you at all, but if you are at a grower and you can't find anyone to name a plant or tree, then don't buy from them. I go to wholesale nurseries often and each tree-plant is labeled.

    The nursery didn't have that tree, that's why they didn't know. I have since found out the its a dawyck gold beech, but thanks for the info. Actually the wholesaler I go to has nothing labelled.
