After pruning the vines we have to prune the olives. These olives are planted in 2006 and have grow fast last year. The olives grow in the springtime till it get to hot, than the stop.
And continue in October and November.
We prune all the branches witch hit the ground, and grow inside the tree.
For the rest we let them unattached.
It is a quick system due to the traditional pruning. The traditional system make the tree more open on the inside. We do not do that, the advantage is that er remain more branches over for bearing the olives!
