I decided to post this because even though I have not decided on a final route on how to take this Wild Olive - Olea europaea subsp. africana it is still a beauty in my eyes.

The tree is an estimated age of 75 years old.  I inherited it from my father in law when he passed away in 2014 so it has real sentimental value to me. 

I do see many possible ways that this can go but the one that is standing out more and more is looking at a literati.  The deadwood on the trunk is very pleasing to the eye in my view and if one narrows down the canopy correct and changes the pot, it can definitely work.
