    Can you guys help me with these please?

    First pics are of a shrub that I have seen quite a few times (even trimmed), but I still don't know the name.

    Is this a Norway Spruce?

    Pic 1 looks like sea-buckthorn. does it get yellow orange berries?

    Pic 2 could be a Norway Spruce. Can you take a pic standing further back so to get an idea of the tree form?

    Thank you guys for the help! Buckthorn it is. Pretty neat shrub, especially the upright variety.
