The landscape around Vasa Kellakiou is mainly low scrub dotted with a few, not very tall trees. Let's take the trees first, then we'll go on to bushes and scrub. The main tree species in the Vasa area are olive, almond, carob, hawthorn and aleppo pine.
Olive is the iconic species of Cyprus and other Mediterranean islands. Although it is also cultivated it grows wild everywhere. It lives to a great age (many hundreds of years) and typically has a gnarly trunk. It can be recognised by the small, oval, pointed leaves which are ... well ... olive-green (greyish green). The olives are green at first but eventually go black.
