Juniper Trees are symbolic for a great journey that has many twists and turns. It is a tree that continues to grow, despite all odds. When other vegetation and ground life around it withers or dies due to drought or harsh conditions, juniper trees continue to find life. How it is able to do this is mainly attributed to its roots system, making up more than 2/3 of the tree's mass. Juniper trees typically don't grow straight. They grow sideways, up, down... pretty much in any way that enables it to survive.
