I have some sort of evergreen tree that is all around the edges of my timber.I have been told they are Juniper,But what kind?They seem to grow a few feet a year and put in a row makes an excellent windbreak.These are also found commonly along Scott county roads from 6" to 8' plus.Any idea what version these may be? Thanks

Hi Eddie:

This species is more than likely eastern redcedar (Juniperus virginiana).

Best, Jay
