There’s an old juniper in the north meadow at Grover Hot Springs State Park that stands out like a sore thumb. It looks tightly pruned, which would be uncharacteristic of the native Sierra juniper (Juniperus grandis) that is common in this area (but not in meadows), so is it a non-native species? Planted by an early homesteader? I couldn’t find the seed cones (a.k.a. “juniper berries”) I would need to help identify it. I’ll have to examine it again on my next visit.
