Since this tree is not indigenous to SA, I have no sure way of identifying it, please help. Perhaps a Juniper (but only one type of foliage), Cypress or False Cypress (but it is back budding on old wood).

The tree in general:

The back budding:

Thanks Jim, my internet surfing kind of led me in that direction too. Now I'm off to learn more about it.

It seems that Chamaecyparis don't backbud on old wood. Off to check out Arborvitae, thanks Russell.
