trunk of ancient olive tre, Apulia, Italy

trunk of ancient olive tree, Apulia, Italy This and other ancient olives trees are still growing in Apulia. This one, near the ancient Roman ruin of Engluzia, is still producing olives. The owners prune such trees and graft new branches to keep the tree producing. I was awed by its age and character.
