Looking for a Tree Surgeon in the Algarve?

The Trees and Bushes in Flower within 200m of Vale Grifo Farmhouse.

All taken by inexpert photographer with digital camera on "idiot" settings in Spring 1999, (except for the Judas Tree in flower which was taken by someone with a steadier hand!).

This is the best time of year to visit if you enjoy country walks (or rides!) through nature's canvas. The Judas Trees are in full flower, and the Cystus in many different species are running riot.

Although not experts, we always try and identify the flowers, birds, reptiles, insects and mammals that we see around, using a small collection of reference books.
