The replanting process is of utmost importance for the olive trees not to be damaged and preserved for preparation to be distributed to the consumer.
About the Olive tree industry...
Olive trees must be ordered in the year prior to planting from an Olive Tree Nursery that specializes in olive tree propagation.
PLANTING OUT OF YOUNG TREES
Our trees are available established in plastic planting bags. The trees are well worth the higher initial and transporting costs as they give superior transplanting results as well as more latitude at planting time than bare-rooted trees.
The choice of which varieties to plant is determined by the following:
• The adaptability of the cultivar to a specific region.
• The cross pollination requirements of the cultivars.
• The ripening period and harvest season.
• The producer must determine his end goal for processing and establish the market plan.
The olive branch has long been known as a symbol of victory, peace and purity. It has been historically worn by brides, carried by doves and made into wreaths.
