fruitless olive tree question
I'm considering adding fruitless olive tree in my new backyard landscape (Chandler). I really like the look of the trees, and have read many positive comments.
One question I do have... I've seen some other mature trees around town (Phoenix and suburbs) with LOTS of "offshoots" (suckers?) growing from large limbs and the base of the trunk. It appears these "offshoots" would continuously need to be removed to maintain the shape/size of the tree, and it is not at all attractive. I'm not certain if these olives are the fruitless variety or some other fruit-bearing type as I always notice this on larger/older trees.
Do the fruitless olive trees have this same problem?
