I went out scouting for Ashe juniper earlier this week and to my surprise I ran across a stand of oneseed junipers! This is in Taylor county, Texas. East of where I though their range extended. The foliage and bark was different and every berry I examined only has one seed. Give me your opinion on it. I believed it was two late in the season to collect anything but I talked with some more experienced collectors and they believed there was still time so I went for it and got a couple nice trees. And I included a couple pictures of a wonderful specimen!4B2D3559-BECC-4B9A-B22F-BAA5095EB679.jpeg3E6B63D4-5601-44AF-BF04-73D23F6234C9.jpegD825828B-FF50-4EA9-B057-59998249509E.jpegCCA20AD7-97B3-4B47-B201-E1AA4EB6B3AB.jpeg4BB4D495-07A6-43D7-B991-7D00D48DE939.jpeg5638B1F3-1C6D-4865-8FB3-CFADFC0A551F.jpeg6CB445EB-A245-42D6-9238-BB3C0BBF82F6.jpeg9D8FB7DD-26ED-4E80-8C92-A04D29C8B0C0.jpeg7351E69E-354E-4060-A33F-5AAC290FFDA1.jpegB86FFD62-C6E2-4B17-8533-F2428C7A7630.jpeg

Let me know. If you want to sale it
I need to give a year at least to make sure it’s going to Be okay! But I will keep you in mind. I plan on collecting a bit more this coming season and I will have a better rehab situation for the trees.

They seem very similar to the Utah juniper that grows around my region. An underrated tree in my opinion. All the attention is on Rocky Mountain juniper, understandably, but Utahs naturally grow their foliage in little, dense bunches making them naturals for bonsai. I haven't found any I particularly love enough to collect, but they're high on my list. Best of luck! I'm looking forward to seeing how it goes.
