Olive Tree Pruning

Anonymous added on August 3, 2011 | Answered

My fruitless olive trees are growing well, but with many branches growing out from the base. I'm not sure how I should prune them to encourage a single trunk at the base. As they mature, will the single trunk at the base develop by itself?

Your olives won't develop a single trunk on their own. To develop a single trunk, you need to prune out those branches at the base.
