The designated trees along the 700 block of Harvard Ave. are Olive Trees. Normally I don’t think much about these trees until the fall when the olives start falling on the ground, making walking a little bit of an adventure. Some residents are good about keeping their sidewalks clear, but others are less conscious, and my shoes will have olive smush in the tread.
