Can you tell from these photos what kind of tree this is?

A close-up picture of the foliage would be helpful, but it looks like Juniperus virginiana.

Yes, unfortunately, the lowest limbs were very far up and the other trees around it made the light unfavorable for a better photo. Online pictures of Juniperus Americana look like it and I was thinking maybe it was a cedar. Thanks, Tom.

Agree with Eastern Juniper Juniperus virginiana.

Not a cedar, they have very different bark:

Resin, you are right. Those really are different! I guess I am thinking of Juniperus Virginiana's common name (Redcedar) rather than the true Cedar Tree. Thanks!

I overlooked this photo that I'd taken of the tree. Though not very clear, the foliage is visible. Does this help to nail down Juniperus Virginiana as the ID?

Ce n'est pas un cèdre :)

Yes, it does look like Juniperus virginiana.

Tom, thanks for the feedback -- I had to do a bit of work for that one!
