"Bonsai" Olive trees are not true Bonsai. The term is used only to describe the careful, intensive shaping and trimming of the growing tree. Our shaped trees are allowed to grow as large as needed. We custom shape and style your Bonsai Olive tree in various forms such as 'Balls', 'Umbrellas', and sculptures that only your imagination can design. This intensive sculpting process requires careful growth and trimming to achieve the final effect. Continued maintenance is a necessity for this tree. The work needed to produce these custom-sculptured trees is reflected in their price.
