Trees from The Ancient Olive Tree orchards range in age from 25 to over 100 years old, and are farmed in Corning and Anderson, California, about 150 miles north of San Francisco.
Planted in rows, old growth specimen olive trees highlight a dramatic entry or drive; or they can be used to create a small grove to shade an outdoor kitchen or entertainment space; or integrate our trees into a natural landscape to create a memory of the Tuscan countryside.
Sevillano specimen olive trees are generally grown in commercial groves, and have an oak-like form. The trees can grow to 35 feet in height and perform best in zones 8, 9 11-24.
Because of their unique root system even the oldest of trees can be successfully transplanted. Transplanted olive trees require full irrigation for the first year, but can survive intense heat and extended dry periods.
Specimen trees are most lush when planted in rich soil, but will also flourish in alkaline, rocky environments with little or no fertilizer. Olive trees prefer dry, hot summers but are also quite hearty in coastal regions.*
