Juniperus, maybe Juniperus chinensis cultivar. Where's Resin?

I agree that it's definitely Juniperus sp.

Any chance of an image of a cone (berry)? J. chinensis has rather large ones, compared to J. virginiana which is native around here.

A cultivar of Juniperus squamata. The foliage is very like 'Meyeri', but that has a different (much less neat) shape overall.

Thanks everyone.
Reason I ask is we have a couple of geese and I was hoping to let them graze on the grass around it so I needed to check it wouldn't be poisonous to them if they decided to have a nibble at the tree. From searching about the varieties of junipers though it seems it should be fine. Was worried it could be a yew or something, although it didn't look like pictures of yew I wanted to be sure!

ViburnumValley - I haven't seen it produce any cones or berries in the couple of years I've been here.
