    Suppose to be the oldest living Olive Tree

    The oldest living olive tree is Greece's Olive Tree of Vouves in Crete. It still produces spectacular, and expensive, olives.

    Wouldn't you like to see what kind of wild grain this tree would give your next project!

    Well Dan I would think a tree like that is well guarded so cutting down may prove challenging.

    Heck, if it was not guarded it would prove challenging.

    That was a great pic to post Dan. Thanks!

    Enjoy,
