You can make your own tree juniper but it will take quite a while. Purchase a juniper plant and remove all but the thickest, most upright stem. Place a stake next to the plant and tie the stem so it grows upright. Pinch off all of the foliage except for a topknot at the very top. As the plant grows just keep tying the stem to the stake so it grows straight up, and be sure to pinch out all the growth except for the topknot. In 3-4 years you will have a little juniper tree.
