The leaves of Juniperus oxycedrus subspecies macrocarpa

Juniperus oxycedrus macrocarpa only grows in a few coastal areas of Crete and its habitat is threatened by the development of tourism.
Because of its Greek name of kédros it is often called a cedar but this is a mistake as there are no cedar trees whatsoever in Crete.
