Blue juniper like branches. It’s grown twice as large as indicated. Need to know if I should transplant or remove if it’s going to grow larger

    Does this have any cones/fruits ? It would help quickly in identifying species of conifers. For now I’m guessing, maybe something in the Chamaecyparis Sawara cypress/false cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera) the ‘Squarosa or ‘Boulevard’? If this of the species, check out the included link for both cultivars (using the red tab on the right for species & cultivars.) Click on images to enlarge. Again, I’m only guessing for now. The plant’s cones & closeup of its bark are needed for a confirmed ID or rule out this suggested ID. Best wishes!
