Well, there's Holly (Ilex aquifolium L.), and various 'Mediterranean'
species of Oak especially Cork Oak (Quercus suber L.), Holm Oak
(Quercus ilex L.) and the naturally occurring hybrid Quercus
xhispanica Lam. Then there are the Strawberry Trees (Arbutus spp. ). I
suppose Laurels (Laurus) and Cherry-Laurels (Prunus spp.) might just
scrape in as trees.
