Pencil Pine.  Very interesting conifer from the highlands of Tasmania where it is threatened due to fires and degradation of habitat from grazing and too many Eucalyptus.  The leaf scale are tightly appressed to the stem so the green branchlets do look very pencil-like.  A moderate grower with old-growth trees 30'-60' but you won't have to worry about it - it takes a while.
