And I do can find a small bald cypress along the river bank somewhere that’s easy enough to get out with a garden shovel it’ll come home too.

Nope Texas Ashe Juniper (juniperus Ashei) is a lot different than Utah Juniper (juniperus osteosperma). Besides completely different ranges, Ashe Juniper is notoriously hard to collect. One of the more easily collected and terrific bonsai species in the world grows NEXT to ashe junipers--cedar elm. Cedar elm has "cedar" in its name because of its habit of liking the same kinds of soils as ashe juniper (locally called "cedar").

Also agree with Zach on the shovel and BC.

I’ve found a bunch of small cedars/junipers whatever they are. All 1’ tall or less.

And I’ve found some smaller bald cypress but haven’t figured out how I’m going to get them out yet. All of the ones I’ve found are anywhere from 2-5’. Still looking for a smaller one.

For now we’re havjng a cold one whilst sitting in the middle of the river.
