How old can it be?



I usually don't put pictures here but this olive tree was just amazing in size and shape so I just got to show you!! How old can this tree be? Must be several hundred years old?! Can anyone tell me? Maybe Matteo?
I let my son, Alix (150cm tall), stand beside to get the notion of size right...

This may be one of the milenarian olive trees that live in Italia.
It is said that some of them are from Jesuchrist era , so 2000 years ago... just a kid!

Jag har ett ställe i Turkiet, där odlas underbart goda oliver..olivolja..brukar besöka olivlundarna och de är gamla...men inte har jag sett sådant gammalt träd..

I like the old and big trees. They can tell a lot of stories. I think you both are right, very old.
