A lone tree in the hills of Akrotiri

A lone (wild) olive tree on a hillside of the Akrotiri peninsula. Most of the hills are barren (most probably due to deforestation) but there are some areas with old stands of olive trees (by Agios Giorgos and also in the valley that connects Katholiko to Agios Antonios) but no one is looking after them or harvesting them anymore.
