Black Olive Trees

Granada Blvd. is lined with the black olive tree for about a mile. It's a beautiful site to see these mature trees. Many people think that they are native trees, but they are exotics from the Bahamas. Commercial landscapers are by law obliged to plant a certain % of natives in their new installations. Many landscaper use the black olive to get credit for their % of native Florida plants. For more information click here.
