multi-trunk olive trees

justmeinsdMay 11, 2009

I am thinking about planting a mult-trunk Olive tree in my courtyard. I have been looking for information on how much room I need to plan around them but all I can find is the total width of the tree. Does any one know how much room the mult-trunks take when mature?

A lot for a courtyard. You're looking at 20-25 feet even with training. But there's few things better than a stately olive, gnarled and standing guard over your courtyard, as long as you don't mind the cleanup.

Thanks Dan. It will be in the front cornor so that 1/3 of it will be shading the outer garden. It is a really big courtyard. About 40' long.
