Oxycedrus, Spanish cedar or juniper.
The Juniperus oxycedrus is known by several common names: juniper, Spanish cedar or juniper. It is a shrub or small tree, which can reach up to 14 metres in height, often used for ornamental purposes.
The Cypress has both male and female trees (dioecious species) and its false fruits turn dark red or brownish as they ripen. From them - as from the leaves - an oil is extracted that has vast cosmetic and medicinal applications.
This is a species native to the Mediterranean area, the Black Sea and the Middle East. It grows in coastal zones of drier areas, but can also be found in wetter forested areas at higher altitudes. This juniper is resistant to cold, dryness and nutrient-poor soils. In continental Portugal it is native to the North and Central interior, mainly in the Northeast region of Trás-os-Montes.
