We have two olive trees, one North of the raised garden and one South. Neither has been doing that well.
But the South one is apparently doing much worse. It had two main branches from the trunk and one of the rotted and fell off just a couple weeks ago. Then we had the coldest weather ever here in Central Texas, snow and ice everywhere for days.
and the South olive tree is clearly not going to make it. So I cut it down.
I will need to go out and dig up the stump, but that will require dryer soil, so it can wait.
The North olive tree does not look much better
but we will wait to see what happens in the Spring.
