tree Identification

Post  Gentleman Jack on Fri Mar 25, 2016 5:35 pm

This is a juniper that was growing against one of my out buildings. every year the deer would literally strip it od foliage and it always popped right back in the spring. I finally decided I'd see if I could bonsai it. I do not know what variety of juniper it is. Can anyone identify?

Does or has the foliage always looked like this (needley), or has it had foliage that looks different; more like arborvitae? If needley only it looks like Juniperus chinensis 'Blue Point'; just a guess. I have one in my collection and it has survived a few years in a grow box, so I think it's usable.

The foliage always looks like that, Dave, and does have a bluish cast. I think you may have got it. Thanks!

The foliage you show, in that very blurry pic, is known in the parlance as 'juvenile'.Junipers show this if young or pruned.J.communis shows this all the time.I can't remember if you mentioned how long you have had it or what you have done.
Oh yes,just took the trouble to look back at your post.Deer would be sufficient to keep the foliage juvenile.By the way,I live in the tropics and cannot grow Juniperus.Lucky you!

Thanks, Geo. I knew it was a juniper, just unsure of what variant it was, and I think Dave Leppo may have nailed it. While I can grow junipers easily here, you can grow many tropical species I would have problems doing.

They are very common over here, and they take a lot of abuse. I nearly killed my tree a couple of times, but it allways survived.

In case you havnt figured it out yet, foemina is the standard answer for any unknown species. Kind of a joke that seems to never get old for some. I think youve been hazed enough. Its not personal, every newb with a species question will get foemina for an answer. Some dont even look at the tree! As for the right name, Im sorry but I cant help. But I hope I cleared that up for you, as someone did for me not too long ago.. Dont let'em get you down! Good luck, have fun.

Hey, these are closer to foemina than most!
But yeah. Sad to say they're arent. Maybe someday.
I'd go with Zach Smith on the other one, G.Jack he collects lots and knows his trees.
