I'm eyeing some roadside yamadori but not 100% certain on species and suitability. For instance seeing a lot of these juniper. The growth habit appears much more horizontal than the native j. Virginiana. Quite sparkling like a ground cover but branches spear up at a 30-40 degree angle. 20220521_093729.jpg

Noted quite a few of these pines that have an interesting Windswept look at times. I'm guessing Jack pine ( P. Banksia) which if correct are a little fussy to collect un my experience.

Finally this last fellow looks like it might have little suitable small leaves. Not sure about how it will branch. I'm thinking Hawthorn?

Its Juniperus communis, pretty unmistakable, they are quite tricky to collect very few survive

I have found hawthorns easy to collect. But before you dig find the landowner and get permission.
