Proof that good things come in small packages, the olive tree rarely exceeds 8 metres in height, but packs a whole lot of punch. It provides food, oil and medicine for hundreds of years.
Olive trees also provide the main source of livelihood for over a million Palestinians, helping to sustain generations to come.
The trees are planted twice a year (March and October) and take between 3-5 years to start bearing fruit.
