very nice tree. might looks about the same shape though it's only about 10' tall. FWIW, think the current "correct" name for the trees growing in Washington is p. bracteata. there are many species of persea most of which are small fruited and several are great ornamentals like "your" plant and for that matter p. thunbergii which also does well in the PNW (and the s.e.) even produces viable seed.
