Collected Wild Olive

Post  Justin Hervey on Thu Sep 22, 2011 2:10 pm

I thought I'd share some images of a wild olive that I recently collected:
The real attraction for me was the high quality and movement of the deadwood, it should be a very interesting tree in 5 to 10 years.

Hi Justin
Very interesting olive with fantastic deadwood. Do you have a pic of the live side merging into the deadwood?

Hi Cosmos

Here is an update of the tree's progress (apologies for the confused background), there is no live vein on the dead-wood element, the left branch will become the main trunk with an apex not far above its current termination.

A beautiful yamadori olive! It will definitely make a stunning bonsai. Is it the smaller leafed variety?
Regards
Hank

Great movement and dead wood, nature is the best bonsai artist.

Yes Hank, it is the small leafed variety.

Here is the tree as it looks today:
Potted up in August, the existing deadwood at the base cleaned up and some created.
It will now grow freely for a couple of years, still a long way to go but I am very happy with the potential.
