Green and Brown

Different micro climates on Cyprus support different forms of agriculture.

Down in the valleys there are serried ranks of citrus trees. Oranges and lemons are common here, and can be seen lying at the sides of rural roads. This is where you will find olive groves*

Up in the Troodos mountains you will find conifers and goats. 

Between these two zones, farmers appear to grow stones or luxury villas.

Why is it always a grove when olives are involved? Why is it not an olive forest.
