Rocky Mountain Juniper – Juniperus scopularum
Discovered near Drummond, MT in a quick Reconnoiter up a hill in 1989. Carrying only a crowbar and pruners, I had to sacrifice my shirt to tie the roots of this beauty after extraction. It was growing in ruins of basalt, so he left bare root. His incredible trunk and deep age become a favorite.
