Growing in the Wild

I’ve watched this tree growing close to our farm for about four years. I’ve watched for it in other areas to see if appears to be invasive. To date, I haven’t seen another one in the area.

The limbs are quite dense and has maintained this straight shape since I first noticed it. Can anyone help me?

Also, I’d like to do some cuttings. Can anyone help me with that task as well?

    Red Bay? (Persea borbonia) Crush a leaf and see if you get that spicy, bay odor. Do the fruits turn blue?

    This does not look at all like a red bay to me. Need a close up photo of the leaves. Might be a variety of podicarpus, which can be pruned to become a tree or a shrub.
