Juniperus monosperma

Common Names
One-seed juniper

One-seed juniper usually is shrubby, 10 to 25 feet high with several curved limbs arising near the ground level, and only rarely a tree with a single trunk. Like Utah juniper, the bark is stringy and the "berries" contain 1 or 2 seeds, but unlike it, the "berries" and the pollen occur on different trees. The junipers are in the Cupressaceae family.

Common in the desert grassland and pinyon-juniper ranges in southeastern and north-central Arizona, but does not occur in the western or upper northern portions; often growing with Utah juniper; 3,000 to 7,000 feet elevation.
