Losses of newly planted olive trees from the January freeze are just now beginning to show up. Observers say trees that were water-stressed suffered the most freeze damage. The super-high-density olive plantings are in the early stages of bloom. Most of the young trees will produce fruit for the state’s expanding olive oil production. Farmers are also preparing the ground for new plantings that are scheduled for next month.
