Q.Why Won\’t My Olive Trees Produce Fruit?
I have had one olive plant for about 5 years now. First in Baltimore in a container for 3 years then planted in the ground in south Georgia. I got another plant two years ago and planted it near the first one.

You are in zone 8b, which should be good for growing olive trees. The most common reason for this is if you've experienced heavy rains. Since many olive trees pollinate through the transfer of pollen from wind, if their environment has been too wet it can hamper the process. The other reason could be that you have non-fruit bearing olive trees. But remember that olives often take up to 12 years to become mature enough to bear fruit, so patience might be a key factor.Here's a good article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/gardening-by-zone/zone-8/zone-8-olive-trees.htm
