UBC tree tag 8186

I am a volunteer with a nature center in New Jersey, and we are trying to ID trees that were planted by the homeowners about 40 years ago. They loved "exotic" trees - and we have been surprised by what's there. One tree that has us stumped looks a lot like trees I saw on the UBC campus yesterday, near the Asian Center. It has very lumpy, corky bark - Two of the trees have tag #s 8185 and 8186. . . And there were other similar trees nearby. I'd appreciate any help! Thanks in advance.

Re: UBC tree tag 8186

It worked for me, but the search function took some time to figure out. Tree numbers 8185 and 8186 are listed as Pseudotsuga menziesii. I kind of thought that might be what they were from the description and memory of what is planted around the Asian Centre.
