History:From the Holy city of Bethlehem the city of Jesus birth and cradle of Peace we are honored to introduce to you for the first time ever the wood of the Holiest Tree in the Holy Land... the wood of Bethlehem sacred olive Trees also called Roman trees, they got their Roman name because they have been living in Bethlehem and bearing fruits since the time of Jesus and the Romans.
Location:Olive Trees grow in many parts of the Holy Land but the richness and textures of the Bethlehem olive wood is not matched. One of the reasons for that is due to the fact that the oldest olive trees in Holy Land are located in the city of Bethlehem and the older the olive tree is the more grains and textures you will find in wood.
Tree:The olive tree is a slow growing tree which fills during the first 7 years of its life. It is especially productive thought out her life. Growing to heights ranging from 10 to 40 feet.
Reaching the age of 200 the trunk disappears, shoots develop at the base of the trunk which eventually grow into a new tree, hence the reputation as the immortal tree.
Between April and June a multitude of small, white perfumed flowers appear in groups under the preceding year's leaves. They only last a few weeks. One olive is born for about 20 flowers. Normally the first flowering only takes place after about 8 years.
