Nope defo not a leylandii - although it grows as fast. The foliage is a bit spiky not the scale like foliage of a leylandii

I think it's a giant redwood, Sequoiadendron giganteum. I've seen them in people's yards in the Pacific Northwest. There are a number of cultivars commercially available.

A bit of the history of the tree would be interesting. Did you plant it or was it there when you moved in? Does it produce cones? What else is around it in the garden? That second question would be the best help in solving the ident issue.

The reason for asking is that quite simply Sequoiadendron not a common garden tree in the UK, although you can get them in some of the bigger garden centres.
