Unique Specimen Olive Trees
Mature olives that are many years old
Defra-Approved Olive Trees
This is our collection of unique specimen olive trees. In each case, the olive tree you see in the image is the actual plant you are buying. We introduced this specimen olive tree collection following the popularity of our unique topiary cloud trees and our unique Japanese Acer trees.
Each of these beautiful ancient olive trees is unique and quite rare. These trees are at least 20 years old and in some cases as much as 100 years old or more. It takes decades to create these beautiful specimen olive trees yet they are relatively easy to keep trimmed to shape. There is something immediately striking and timeless about using a mature ancient olive tree as a central focal point for a garden. These specimen show-stoppers can be as large as one metre in diameter and show as much beautiful, gnarled ancient trunk as possible. We also have many smaller sizes available. All our specimen olive trees are fully hardy and once established, they are drought tolerant.
All our specimen olive trees are DEFRA-approved.
Please contact us if you have any questions about the trees. CLICK ON THE IMAGES BELOW for price and size of each tree.
