Thanks. I doubt it's anything valuable as it came from seed sown by the birds.

Arlene, that's just a wild guess on my part. I'm not great at identifying plants by comparing photos, especially trees ... it just reminded me of the Red Cedar but I don't even know if that tree grows in your area. Hopefully others will chime in here with suggestions. Smiling

Oops, was it already positively ID'd back in June? I didn't see the other thread ... sorry.

No definite conclusion so I'm still looking for an ID. I didn't realize I had posed the question back in June. Blame it on age.

I'm fairly sure it's Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis)

But I wonder if Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis) would grow in Long Island, N.Y. where Arlene lives?

Juniperus occidentalis (western juniper or Sierra juniper) is a shrub or tree native to the western United States, growing in mountains at altitudes of 800–3,000 metres (2,600–9,800 ft) and rarely down to 100 metres (330 ft).

Oh, for some reason I thought pirl was from Oregon. *Blush*

Eastern Redcedar (Juniperus virginianus) then.

I'm sure I am much older, Kent!

Our altitude is about 16'.

I'll go with Eastern Redcedar then and close this thread.

Thanks to all for the ID.
