I am looking to buy cupressus macrocarpa goldcrest which are about 350 to 400cm in height

Vale of Glamorgan, United Kingdom Gb

Thank you for your response re: cupressus macrocarpa goldcrest. Would it be possible to prune it so that the base is a max of 2m? Are there any other evergreen columnar type trees of a light green foliage that could be purchased at around 3m in height? I would be grateful for any information.

Ultimate height and spread of these is 12m by 4-8m, broader at the base of the foliage. Whilst they can be clipped over to shape, trying to keep the width at only 1m all the way up will likely be impossible. If you want something that narrow, a better choice would be Juniper 'Skyrocket' or Taxus fastigiata aureomarginata.
