The Olive Tree
For thousands of years, Israel has been a fertile, natural environment for harvesting olives.
But, before the people, who appreciate Olive trees, return to the Holy Land, years of neglect and desertification decimated the country’s olive groves. Re-introducing the olive to Israel has been a long-term project and priority, and today many olive trees are found in Israel.
The olive tree has great significance to Israel. The olive branch has been a traditional symbol of peace for thousands of years. The olive itself has special qualities that can be associated with peace and harmony.
• Olives provide oil for lamps, so they provide light.
• The cleansing power of olive oil brings purification.
• The hardiness of the olive tree symbolizes fertility and vital energy.
• Olive trees can live for 3000 years, evoking longevity.
In addition, the olive branch is featured in the biblical story of Noah and the flood. Noah sends out a dove to find and bring back evidence of dry land. The dove returns with an olive leaf in its beak, as proof that the flood had subsided. The olive leaf is said to be God’s way of telling mankind that the struggle between them is over.
Pruning of Olive Trees
In mature trees, pruning is mainly required to renew the fruiting surface of the tree and achieve high yields, maintain vegetative growth of fruiting shoots, maintain the skeleton structure, contain tree size, favor light penetration and air circulation inside the canopy, permit control of pests and diseases, prevent aging of the canopy, and eliminate dead wood. Under certain circumstances, pruning can be required to alleviate the effect of abiotic stress, to re-form the canopy after damage by frosts and pests, to rejuvenate old or abandoned trees, and to adapt an obsolete training system to mechanical harvesting. Under most circumstances, olive trees are pruned each year, this allows us to use olive wood, which we get after pruning olive trees. We ensure that no young trees are cut for production, but only those deemed unproductive are chosen for our work. Branch strength, size and color are key factors that determine which trees undergo the transformation process.
When wood is cut from a living tree, it is saturated with moisture. As this water dries from the wood, the wood will contract in shape unevenly, due to the differing shapes and sizes of the wood's cells. Therefore, to keep your woodworking projects from warping, cracking, or otherwise becoming distorted, you need to dry the wood thoroughly before using it. Learning how to dry wood for woodworking is a simple and inexpensive process, but it does require a long waiting period for especially moist wood.
