Ancient olive trees are prized for their beauty and attractive, silvery green foliage.
While ancient olive trees may still be producing substantial fruit after many, many years, they are now desired as status symbols and for the beauty of their twisting, gnarly trunks and branches.
Ancient olive trees have become indicators of wealth. Situated flanking a drive, entryway or loggia, these trees immediately convey a sense of permanence and history. Homeowners and landscape architects include these trees in garden designs to provide shade, privacy and noise reduction.
The ancient olive tree compliments many facets of design from classic, Tuscan architecture to contrasting modern minimalism. And it is conveniently durable for transplanting. Ancient olive trees respond well to relocation, making them an ideal tree to provide a sense of history on new (and old) construction sites.
