What plant is this?

Mom bought it for me as a present, but she forgot the name. It's kinda spiky and the stem is wood. None of the plant identification apps can figure it out. Please help


Juniperus virginiana Eastern Red Cedar although it could be a Chamaecyparis sp.

Some type of evergreen, tree or bush.


Some sort of European Cypress, the kind they sell as tabletop Christmas trees for the holidays. If the needles, when crushed, smell like lemons, then it would be a Lemon Cypress.
