Lentini - more trees

A mixed collection this time. The cypress trees will just be scattered around the board to add colour. The olive trees (centre) will be used to provide another couple of fields to contrast with the oranges. Finally a quartet of tree to provide a small area of scrubwood.

A few of the olive trees turned out a bit large so if I get time I'll try and produce some smaller replacements

For those interested in how I made the olive trees, here's the basic steps
Heather twigs cut to size; rubberised horsehair stuck on with contact adhesive; painted with PVA and rolled in sawdust coloured a light green/grey. Finally sprayed with hair spray to fix in place.
