    It looks like some kind of weeping pine.
    I would love to get one, if it's disease resistant.
    We live in the NYC area.
    Comments appreciated

    My guess is it is a weeping spruce grafted cultivar.

    Looks like a weeping Norway spruce.

    They're much more resistant to needle casts and spruce canker in my area as well as tolerating our alkaline clay unless drainage is bad.

    Graft failure can happen but give it a whirl.

    Thanks for getting back! I love the tree, but don't want to start grafting.
    Just a plant and water kind of tree that's disease resistant. Our old
    neighborhood soil is loaded with mold and bad stuff.
