Yes they will be poky in nature. It is an evergreen. It will not have thorns per say. But it will poke you a little.
We have eastern red cedars that grow wild here and spread like weeds. The seeds on them are little blueish berries that birds have to ingest in order for them to sprout. But there are female and male versions of them.
Thanks again smallgardener. I have these popping all over my yard as well. Was certain it was a tree of some sort but being so many I thought maybe a weed I some sort. But it's good to have reassurance.
