As opposed to your previous post, this one is - clearly - Apparitionius transparentii 'Claude Rains'.

Tempting to think exotic but I'd go with the more common Downloadus incompletesia

Sorry, nope; it's a fine specimen of Uploadus interruptus. A close relative of the one you suggested, though.

Actually, I'm having doubts about it now. It could be Powerfailure wiresdownii var. sandyi?

That or possibly Laptopus dedbaterii var noreaster

Howdy 'gain!
I haves looked closely at my pics and the ones given and they are different. The pics given more like spikes while the ones on the tree I took the pic of are wider. Like flat fish scales w a point. Both not the same. Thanks. :)

The width of the leaves varies with the age of the tree and how shaded / sunny a position the individual shoot is in ;-)

Hi Resin! It looks like the one I saw received alot of sunlight. Ill be back that way next month. How old would u say it is? (To get those leaves?) I'm not a fan of sharp critters, but my Father was. Loved cactus so much he grew it from seeds!! :)

Hard to tell, they're slow growing though, I'd guess maybe 15-20 years?

Here's a young seedling one or two years old, and an older sapling with some mature trees behind.
