    Im not good at identifying plants. Any help would be appreciated. I have to find plants just like these for replacements.

    It also looks like they are not getting enough sunlight. Very thin and sickly looking.

    Not a pine. Pine needles are long.

    First one is boxwood. The second is a Juniper. Be careful with the juniper - it is so damn spiky. Boxwoods are really nice plants.

    The first pictures look like they might be of a japanese compacta holly. The last two pictures are a juniper.

    If you are replacing these plants I would leave out the juniper. Boxwoods look great, junipers not so much.
