The olive tree, also called a real olive tree, is a medium-sized (up to 20 m high) tree in old age often gnarled tree of the family of olive trees. Since the 4th century BC, it has been cultivated as a useful plant in order to harvest the fruits and, above all, produce olive oil from it. The wood of the olive tree is very popular with turners. As a veneer, the olive is used in the production of extravagant furniture.
