Alligator Juniper Wood - Scientific name "Juniperus deppeana".   Alligator Juniper is common in the dry mountain ranges of Arizona and New Mexico extending as far north as the San Francisco Peaks of Arizona and as far east as the Trans-Pecos region of western Texas. The species occurs on the dry rocky slopes of mountains within its range in association with piņon pines and other juniper species.

The alligator juniper sometimes reach 65 feet tall, and may grow to 5 feet in diameter. This tree is similar to one-seed juniper with its 1/2 inch long, berry-like structures and typical juniper foliage. Its most distinguishing feature is the tree  bark, which is divided into squares that resemble the skin of an alligator.

One of the largest known alligator junipers is an American Forestry Association Champion is located in Tonto National Forest, Arizona.  It is 29 feet 7 inches in circumference, 57 feet tall, and has a 57-foot crown.

Alligator juniper is valuable to wildlife, often used in rustic furniture and landscape  fencing, and is considered an outstanding fuel wood with aromatic qualities.
When burning, the wood gives off a pleasant "cedar like" scent, and has a tendency to "crackle" and "pop". This wood is easy to start, makes excellent kindling,  and provides a lively fire with little smoke.

Dense alligator juniper populations are thinned to improve wildlife habitats and reduce wildland fire threats in the Southwest..
