Q.stop the olives

Anonymous added on October 11, 2014 | Answered

I have an olive tree that produces tons of olives each year. The problem is I don’t want olives, I just liked the look of an olive tree. Do I have any options besides pulling out the tree?

There is a sterilizing treatment that can be applied to the tree by a professional arborist or lawn care specialist (it is not available to the public). It is not 100% effective and needs to be applied yearly, but will significantly reduce the number of olives the tree produces.
