This time i have decided to give some attention to trimming of the olive tree. I am on the road every day and i am watching people trim their olive trees or how they completely abandon the
need to do it every year. I can say, that you can see just about everything. Some are cut the way it is supposed to be done and others just make me sad. And the worst thing you can do to an olive tree is to not trimm it at all, sadly it can be seen quite often.
I have to emphasize again, that the olive tree needs a lot of attention and you have to keep track of what is going on with it. It needs to be trimmed considering it`s growth. That means that when trimming olives, one has to consider many circumstances, such as variety, age, position, climate, … and considering all of this things, you have to adjust the way you trimm your olive grove. This is the way to get excellent fruits and consequently excellent product.
The fact is, that it is better to trim man olive any way you can than to not do it at all, but i would much rather see an olive that is cut the right way, because i know, thai it means it can grow and develop the way it is meant to. In conclusion, my advice is, watch your olives and cut them considering their needs.
