Information INFORMATION The Ashe Juniper is commonly found in central Texas, but can grow in Arkansas and Oklahoma. In good conditions, this tree may live for 200-350 years. Birds use the tree for cover and animals browse the plant on occasion. The male tree is known to contribute to high pollen counts and allergy problems in the spring. The tree is quite versatile and drought tolerant, but seldom used in landscapes.
