Olive tree is an evergreen tree, whose vegetative activity is almost continuous, with attenuation in the winter period. It has slow growth and is very long-lived: in favorable climatic conditions it can become millenary and reach heights of 15-20 meters. Roots, mostly of the adventitious type, are expanded and superficial: generally they do not go beyond 0.7-1 meter in depth. The stem is cylindrical and twisted, with gray bark and hard and heavy wood. The crown has a conical shape, with fruiting branches and pendulous or patent branches (arranged horizontally with respect to the stem) according to the variety.
