Olive trees

The picture is here simply to show how little soil they need, only apparent because this tree is sitting at the top of a cutting made to allow the Hebron Road to be widened...

... which is a major part of the explanation of why such trees are ubiquitous in the stony ground round here (often on terraced slopes where the cleared stones form the edges of the terracing).
