    1. It is, isn’t it, Joni? It is just one from a whole grove of such trees. If you look to the left in the picture you’ll see another. Most of the olive trees in this particular grove are very ancient!

        1. Olive trees are generally grown by farmers, Barbara. I doubt any were planted much in the US until some time after the founding fathers arrived. And this tree is probably well in excess of 1,000 years old.

          1. That’s incredible – as you can see, I don’t know much about trees. We had a tree in the town where I grew up in NJ that dated back to the early settlers. The legend was that George Washington tied his horse to it! And they built a road around it to preserve it. 🙂

            1. I only know about trees because I was going to be a forester when I was a teenager: my dad was a bit of an amateur naturalist and I picked up the interest through him.
              Good to know someone in the US was sufficiently aware to save that tree, though.

    1. They can grow to a great age, and continue to fruit throughout their lives, Lynette. And, let’s face it, we all love a bit of olive oil!
