Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.

Olive is one of the many genera of trees found above ground. Like the vast majority of above ground trees, olive wood is brown and produces brown products.

Olive trees possess the third densest wood and the densest wood that is not restricted to evil biomes or the deep caverns. This density makes olive wood a less optimal choice as a material for bins and other goods that need to be hauled regularly. Elves armed with olive wood arrows and weapons are slightly more dangerous to civilian dwarves than those made from other types of wood.

Olive fruit can be eaten raw, or can be pressed into olive oil and a unit of olive pomace at a screw press. Olives can be harvested by setting up a gathering zone.

Some dwarves like olive trees for their oil-giving fruit.

Admired for its oil-giving fruit.
