Olive Tree - need help identifying

bvillanovaAugust 21, 2011

Please help...I acquired what I was told is an olive tree but I can't find any info on this type of tree as all the research and pictures do not look like mine. It is cloud pruned and looks like a big Bonsai, produces very small red elongated berries...part of the tree is dying off so I need to figure out what type it is so that I do not lose the tree. I live just north of Tampa. I have pictures but not sure if I can post them here.

Please help.

Thanks

Bob

it sounds like you might have autumn olive which is not a true olive and is invasive does the tree have thorns? do the berries have grey flecks?
