Olive wood shows magnificent cloud formations on bright golden yellow background which give it the natural charm. We offer olive veneers in standard thicknesses, sawn timber and tabletops. The dense, hard and precious wood impresses not only by its aesthetics but also its high robustness. The evergreen olive tree can get hundreds of years old and up to 25 m high. As it nowadays is mainly grown as short-stem plantation tree, large dimensions with this wood are largely unlikely and stems of more than 1 m very rare. Besides, olive growers work on the principle „the more gnarled, the better the fruit“. You find olive tabletops with stunning prominent marbling at Mehling & Wiesmann.
