Is this a Juniper or part of the Juniper Family?

Post  krillin on Fri Jan 02, 2015 7:46 pm

Hi All,

I ran accross this tree yesterday close to where I am on Holiday.....just curious if it is a Juniper or a close family member......looks very similar and growing in the wild, I've never seen one growing wild before.

I am in South Africa, Cape Town







Nay input appreciated

Cheers

Looks like it, but I have no idea what juniper might be found in South Africa.

There is one Juniper in South Africa, J. procera. Actually your tree looks more like a Chamaecyparis, another genus in the same family, the Cupressaceae. Do some Googling and see if you find a match.

I agree it very well could be a Cupressaceae (Cypress), it could also be a domestic wilding.

looks alot like a Leyland cypress, what do you guys think, I'm struggling to properly identify it. However I didnt see any cones on the tree itself.

Could it be?
