    Need to replace one of these, not sure exactly what type. Can anyone put in some input.

    That friend looks like a douglas fir. I could be wrong. Maybe a closer pic of the needles.

    How tall is it?
    How wide?

    At first glance, I'd say it looks like the form of a Douglas fir.

    The one behind it on the left, could be the same, but almost looks like it has a bit smaller needles similar to a spruce.

    But the ones closest to the camera - my guess is Douglas fir.

    It looks like a fir or a spruce. If you grab it and firm it is a spruce. If you turn the needle over and it has two white line and one dark green line down the middle it is a Concolur fir. That is my two cents

    It is a Norway Spruce. Looks like a blue spruce but no blue.

    That's not a norway.... I think it's a Nordmann Fir- slim, layered branching with space in between. Pretty sure.

    if the needles are firm or hurt when you grab the tree branch, generally it is a spruce tree what type of spruce I do not Know. Take a branch and a picture to a good nursery and they can take it from there.
