I have just begun preparing my yard for the summertime. I was out
yesterday and I noticed 6-7 very small trees beginning to grow
throughout the yard- probably 2-4 in tall- but I don't know what they
are. They look like small "christmas" trees, with fir-like needles. I
don't think they are pine trees, as we have none in the general area
of our subdivision. During the holidays I had the christmas tree
outside laying down on the lawn for a bit- before and after
Could these small trees have come from the tree we had at Christmas?
What can I do to take care of the ones I'd like to see grow?
How can I find out more about what I have there?
Thanks for the help!
How can you call them cypress or juniper? The OP did not provide any
description of the things growing.
Yes they did. Dsultan said that "They look like small "christmas"
trees, with fir-like needles". What else looks like a small Christmas
Tree with fir-like needles other than a cypress or juniper type plant?
<snipped> How can you get away with calling yourself the Sedum Queen?
Would you know the difference between Hylotelephium and Sedum even if
bit you on the butt? <cut>
Your reply is Off Topic. Be nice and say so in the subject line.
there are deciduous plants that resemble miniature fir trees- some are
ground covers, some are weeds......
usually, but not always, their stems (trunk) will be green rather than
brown. A real firs trunk would be brown , even a very young seedling.

I didn't see mention yet of it being a Horsetail (Equisetum
arvense). That would be about the right height for them now.
They are a real pain to get rid of, if that is what you
have. See these links for some more info:
They start out looking very different in early spring,
rather like a plantain that looks sickly brown. They are
more closely related to ferns, rather than trees.
More information or an image is needed to identify your new trees.
There are over 200 weed and plant identification web sites that are
listed by region on the World of Weeds web site at www.ergonica.com.
Some of these web sites allow for quick searches by plant features,
instead of looking by name or images alone.
Trees can be weeds, too, if they're not in the place you want them to
Best of luck in your wild tree identification quest.
