Boon,

This tree is surely a challenge. Nice work. On another note and in my opinion, the lower right branch that comes out of the dead portion of the tree does not make much sense to me. If that area of the tree is dead, seeing some life coming out of it is a little odd.

Again, good work.

Kind regards,

Jose Luis

the lower right branch come from the life line behind the dead wood. it is hard to see. the color of the deadwood is similar to life line.
thanks,

Boon,
Your work with this Olive is definitely inspiring! I collected and basically flat cut and number Olives this year and some are already starting to form a branch structure! They are such a hardy species and very forgiving... I also live in Northern California and there is a lot of potential olive material in the old overgrown orchards around the North Valley.
