Pistacia terebinthus

Pistacia terebinthus Turpentine tree or Terebinth

This deciduous large shrub or tree can grow as high as 10 metres and has a strong smell of resin. It is a Dioecious tree, having both male and female flowers and berries in the autumn. I really must improve on this photograph as it is not very good. It flowers from March to May and is native to the Mediterranean.
