Please help me identify this unknown conifer!
There is a nice big conifer growing on the side of one of the streets near where I live. I have seen several trees around the town that appear to be the same species, but nobody seems to know what it is. I have tried identifying it by comparing with pictures online but so far my search has been unsuccessful. I am interested because there I have a large piece of land where I would like to plant some conifers, and this particular kind seems like it grows well in my area. So thinking in the long term, I would like to figure out what species it is so I can get seedlings/seeds. I would really appreciate any input from the experts here! Thanks!
Here are some pictures (click to enlarge):

Close to the base - bark
Any help is much appreciated!!
