Tree of the Month – Holm Oak

The Holm Oak – Il-Balluta

This is an evergreen tree. This very ancient tree was very common in the Maltese Islands but it is now becoming increasingly rare. The leaves resemble those of a holly. The fruit of the Holm Oak are called acorns. This tree can still be found growing naturally in a few places such as Wardija and L-Imġiebaħ.
