The olive is a tree commonly found in Mediterranean countries, where it has a long cultivation tradition and symbolic importance.  Since the 4th millennium BC, it is cultivated for its fruit.


There are two commonly used Olive species in Europe for bonsai – the European Olive (Olea europea) and the Mallorcan Olive (Olea europea var. silvestris), commonly referred to as Ullastre. The standard European Olive has heavy, hard deadwood and slightly large leaves, whereas the Mallorcan Olive has much more striated deadwood and incredibly small leaves. Both, however, make excellent bonsai tree material.


The care of olive tree bonsai is straightforward. Important is a sunny, airy location and a well-drained, structurally stable, calcareous bonsai soil. The water requirement is not high. The olive tree is suitable as a bonsai for beginners.
