The Olive tree has been highly regarded since ancient times. The Aramites believed it was the blessed tree. Various nations and peoples throughout the ages have planted olive trees in various parts of the Holy Land and tried to spread its cultivation. All of these gifts are packaged in strong boxes for safe dispatch to all continents!Olive wood is a very important heat source as it burns slowly and generates high heat. The Olive tree must grow for 150 years before its branches can be used for wood carving, and the cooperative has a policy of planting more new trees than they use for woodcarving. The 'Bethlehem Star Olive Wood Factory', where these gifts are made, was established in 1971 under the supervision of experienced craftsmen. Professionality and quality has always been the motto of the establishment.
