Nice to be back after a long break :-)
This is a Laurisilva forest:

Laurisilva or laurissilva ("laurel forest") is a subtropical forest, found in areas with high humidity and relatively stable and mild temperatures. They are characterised by evergreen, glossy-leaved tree species that look alike with leaves of lauroide type. The members of the Laurel family (Lauraceae) could be prominent, or in association.
Of particular note is the endemic type of humid subtropical laurel forest, macaronesian laurisilva, found on several of the Macaronesian islands of the North Atlantic and Macaronesian African mainland enclaves, namely Madeira Islands, the Azores, Cape Verde Islands and the Canary Islands, a relict of the Pliocene subtropical forests, supporting numerous endemic species.
