olive tree

I have a very young olive tree – maybe 12″ tall stalk with 8 leaves and no branches. Top is broken off. Do olives only grow from the top? Can it survive this damage?

Your tree should actually be ok, since most pruning recommend opening up the tree.
An olive tree will recover from a heavy pruning. Pruning will stimulate and encourage the growth of new fruiting wood.
