Juniperus monosperma

One-Seed Juniper

One-Seed Juniper grows at 3,500 - 7,000 ft. elevation in N. Arizona and New Mexico often with pinon pine. Tough, deep rooted tree. The main source of early spring pollen allergies but since the sexes are on different trees only half the trees (male) offend. Used by more ingenious, earlier peoples for everything - medicine, gum, dye, blankets, shoes, food and fuel. Fall sow or cold stratify 1-4 months. Zones 5-9.
