Hello,
Thank you very much for posting the pictures. I greatly appreciate seeing fig culture from other parts of the world. These photos are very interesting, showing some of the beautiful scenery, people and fig trees.

I have some questions - The 9th picture from the top (showing a large fig tree) appears to be a sycomore fig. Is that correct? There are two photos of a "fig stump" behind glass. What is the significance of that artifact? It looks old and very interesting.

Sincerely yours,
Ingevald

The tree behind the glass is the sycamore tree that Zacchaeus climbed that was mentioned in the bible.
Last photo of a lady hugging her olive tree that is being cut down by force.

Great photos! Also shows the type of rocky, dry soil that figs grow in.
Maybe, My deep loamy-sand is too rich ?
Thanks for the in-sight. Fred

In the last Picture who the hell is trying to cut it. I feel sorry for the poor lady may be this tree all what she has in her entire life. There is no Justice in this dam world.

Referring to that woman hugging her loved and just
being-chopped-down olive tree...

I have heard since I can ever remember of that bad stuff
that some bad-regime did to some ethic people...

Is this not the same thing being done, in a more subtle/cunning way,
by the same former victims, now towards another different ethnic group??

Great pictures, thanks. I wonder the age of some of the oldest living fig trees there? Also; Does anyone know how low the cold tempratures fall in that regon? It takes a long time to grow some of those trees, my heart goes out to that poor lady. What kind of sicko distroys perfectly good trees?
