The Petrified Forest is a unique protected nature reserve. It originated in prehistory when a volcanic eruption buried the trees under volcanic ash. At The Petrified Forest, you’ll see twenty million year old trees. One has found fossil plants and trees here such as the redwood tree, which is only available in tropical and subtropical climates. Scientists conclude that Lesbos in prehistoric times had a tropical climate.
