The Mediterranean region is home to agreat variety of fruit trees such as the carob, the olive and orange trees. The olive tree can live for thousands of years. Other common trees of the Mediterranean are the pine, palm and cedar trees.

The Republic of Cyprus stamp depicts a composite tree featuring the leaves of the olive and pine trees and the fruits of the carob and orange trees.
