The Q&A Archives: Does blue weeping juniper need pruning?

Question: does tolleson's blue weeping juniper need to be pruned? Is there a lot of litter from this tree? Will it grow in an area where a eucalyptus was removed? Is is possible to buy a large sized tree? thank you

Answer: Tolleson's Blue Weeping Juniper is an elegant tree, growing 20' tall and 10' wide at maturity. It does not require pruning and is relatively litter-free. The oldest foliage will eventually drop, but it is easy to rake up. Eucalyptus litter can inhibit the establishment of plant roots; be sure to rake up the debris from the Eucalyptus and be sure the roots have been removed before planting your new tree. Check with your local nursery about tree sizes - not all plants are available at all times from all nurseries.
