  • Tree is growing too close to power lines or buildings
  • Making room for other features such as a pool or BBQ
  • Water bill is too high
  • Making room for a new tree

Managing Your Olive Trees

Olive trees are a truly beautiful tree native to the Mediterranean that thrive here in the Phoenix area providing much needed shade. They are very hardy trees which are drought tolerant, disease and fire-resistant. They can grow nearly 30 feet tall and as wide.

olive treeOlive trees produce abundant fruit which is high in oil content and contains a staining pigment. As the fruit ripens, it falls to the ground, staining walkways and can be tracked indoors, ruining carpet and other surfaces. The olive tree flowers in the spring and many people are highly allergic to the pollen produced.

To avoid the mess and possible allergies, it is important to spray the olive trees with a growth regulator. To be most effective, the best time to spray the trees is beginning in January prior to the tree flowering, preventing both fruit and pollen production.
