If you have ever smelled cedar or juniper wood, then you know the Cypress family. These are mostly evergreen trees or shrubs with small, scaly leaves and separate male and female cones, sometimes on separate trees. The seed cones are typically woody or leathery, with one to several seeds behind each scale. The juniper "berry" is really a cone with merged, fleshy scales.
