the one on the right in 1st pic, mid field in 2nd pic. it is huge, it is old. bought a 150 year old farm house in north carolina and this huge tree is on the property. it had a central trunk that , for some reason at one time, had to be cut down. the inspector mentions in his report that this is the largest, and possibly the oldest, tree of this kind in that county. pine cones are silvery, about equal in length and width, like spinning top. see more in attchmts.
he thought it might be a "locust"(??)
any one know?

It appears to be a baldcypress.

Pwk16 is probably right. Any chance of seeing a close-up of the foliage?
