Olive trees


The olive tree (scientific name Olea europaea) belongs to the Oleaceae botanic family, distributed throughout the world’s temperate and tropical areas, although today it is grown throughout Europe for ornamental use and because of the great world-wide demand for olive oil.

The olive tree is very long-living and can be productive for centuries. It is of medium size, ranging from 4 to 8 metres high depending on the variety and growing conditions.

It grows in any type of soil and at a wide range of altitudes, from the coast to the coldest inland mountain regions.

Viveros Villamolar specialises in olive trees and has over eight hectares dedicated to them in pompom, ball, regional, mushroom, etc, formats with dozens of formats and sizes within these types.
