I have these plants in my yard and I am having a hard time figuring out what they are. They smell like cat pee really bad from a distance but up close they have a nice piney/earthy smell. Located in southwest Washington.

I love junipers. Grow a lot of them. I wish I knew for sure which one that is. I would love to have one. Maybe a conifer expert will chime in soon.

The foliage looks like Thuja occidentalis, not sure which variety, possibly 'Golden Globe'

Juniperus sabina 'Tamariscifolia' seems like a good bet. They were planted all over California in the 50's and 60's in all the new tract homes.. They're prickly, and cat pee is an accurate description. I'm surprised there are no pictures in the database. There are newer cultivars that are similar, but I'd start with the Tam Juniper.
