Mystery Tree

Posted by Stu Busby , Jun 28,2005,06:01       Forum

During recent trips to Andalucia, Spain and the Algarve in Portugal, I have noticed a distinctive tree that intrigues me. They are literally everywhere but seem to grow alone. It resembles a Christmas tree in general shape with symmetrical branches but some appear to have their upward growing fingers only at the ends of each branch, these fingers forming a distinctive triangle shape. Alternatively, some have the upward growing fingers the entire length of the branch. I am a tree layman, so please excuse my poor description. Perhaps somebody can help me and provide me with the name of this type of tree!!

Many thanks in advance!
