The second mega-sumo-olive

This is a wild olive with small foliage. It is really quite impressive and extraordinary. This one found a new home in five minutes.

Very nice, are those little stones trapped between the two trunks that can be seen?

The stones are trapped. One could try to remove them but then we would have big strange holes typically. These are lime stones. The trees grow in a desert like environment between billions of lime stones of all sizes.
The stones are part of the design in my eyes.

I, too, like the stones and hope they stay. Lovely tree.
