UTAH JUNIPER

The evergreen Utah Juniper grows in areas of dry plains, plateaus, hills, and mountains. They are often found in pure stands or with Pinon Pine trees. The bark is fibrous and shredding. These trees grow slowly and they can become more contorted with age from the elements it is surrounded by. The berries can be eaten by humans and birds. Here is a Utah Juniper I saw in northern Arizona.UTAH JUNIPER
