Hi everyone! So glad to be part of this community.
I currently live in Spain and I am desperately trying to find out the name of this small tree that can be found in the mountains of Alzira (Valencia) in Spain.

Neither of my forestal colleagues nor my boss who is biologist could help me out.

ps: on the picture, the brown things are pine needles, not part of the mysterious tree.

Many thanks in advance!!

Hi Marisa and welcome to NGA!

Have you ever seen flowers on this tree?
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Hi Anne, thank you for the welcome!

No unfortunately I haven't seen any flower as it is the first time that I see this tree, and it is winter at the moment.

The leaves are very thin and soft, the branches are soft too, not "barky".
My colleagues thought it was spartium junceum, but I don't think it is, as it is not a shrub.

Many thanks for your help!! Thank You!
