Hello, Hodge. Is there a way to share a larger pic?
What actual species is this? It doesn't look to be a Juniper or a Thuja (common names "eastern cedar").

I'm back...when visiting earlier, I couldn't get the image to expand.
After viewing some of your other posts, I decided to try again...this time it worked :-)
Juniperus virginiana does have needle-like juvenile foliage, but I defer to those
with better identification skills.

I collected it from under an eastern red cedar upon close examination of the host tree i noticed the needles on the new growth were jus needles with a red base. Its just not old enough to have the compound leaves indicitive of a cedar yet

So update on the cedar. A sad day befell me last month. I had been battling an infestation of scales. I tried every technique i could find including picking off individual scales with tweezers. This took several hours. And after a repot to better draining soil and another plucking the stress became too much and it turned brown and faded away before my eyes. You will be missed
