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?

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!
