Weed Warning: Olives are a burgeoning industry in Northern NSW and a stable industry in other parts of Australia. The tree is commonly used as both an ornamental and a useful fruiting tree in the home garden. It also has increasing popularity as a commercial crop throughout the drier regions of SA, NSW and SE QLD. While it will not tolerate wet feet, it will grow well in most other situations including full sun and part shade. The tree is causing concern as an environmental weed in the dry regions of South Australia and New South Wales.
