    I was in Tahoe for the past few weeks and I came across an interesting tree. I could not find any others of this type in the entire area, so I am assuming it is non native. There was no fruit on it unfortunately. It looks to me like a tall Juniper tree but I am not completely sure. I have searched long and far on the web and nothing seems to fit its profile. Please let me know if you can identify this tree, I would like to grow one back here in Oregon.

    Thanks, yes that does match the giant sequoia. Why is the bark grayish though? I've only seen red bark on sequoias. Is it a different dwarf cultivar perhaps?
