Tree Identification - Pine? Fir?

This is growing in my front yard.  I just bought the house last summer so I have no idea what it is.  There are a couple of little ones that started growing underneath.  I want to move them to the back yard but would like to know what they are.  This is growing in central North Carolina.  Thanks for your help.

If the leaves drop in fall it is probably a larch, American larch or European?

The leaves don't drop.  It's nothing that I am familiar with.

Looks like white pine. If the needles are in bunches numbering between 3-7 it’s probably a pine. A Fir needle won’t roll in you fingers, a spruce needle will.

The needles are much shorter than a white pine.

It’s Cedrus.  The single needles on spurs are the key.  Larch does the same but the needles would be gone this time of year. 

 

Not blue enough to be Blue Atlas. 
 

Tough to tell from the photos whether deodara or libanii.  I suspect deodara.  The needles on deodara are longer and tree shape keeps a single leader ( which the photo shows)vs multiple dominant leaders of the other species.
