Also known as Evergreen Oak, Quercus ilex used to be the king of Mediterranean landscape, but it’s dominance is today reduced because of fires (the slow growth of this species being the problem with reafforestation). Often used for urban decoration for it’s beautiful shape and peculiar dark leaves, that cast a deep and cool shadow.
