Adding olive wood accessories to your Nativity stables is a way to add authenticity to the scene. Our olive wood 3-D palm trees come in 3 sizes – Large (7”), Medium (6”), and Small (5”). That means you are sure to find one that is perfect for your olive wood Nativity scene.
Why olive wood? There are two reasons. The first is that no other plant or tree represents the Holy Land and our faith better than the olive tree. As early in Scriptures as Genesis 8, the olive tree is mentioned when Noah sends out a dove and it returns with an olive branch in its beak. That olive branch served to remind Noah and the rest of us of God’s goodwill to man. As we venture into the Gospels, Jesus mentioned the olive tree in parables before being crucified on a cross made of olive wood.
The second reason we use olive wood to fashion these 3-D palm trees and the rest of our olive wood stables and accessories is because of the beauty and stability of the wood. Once you see and feel our designs, you’ll agree – there’s nothing better than olive wood for these intricate hand-carved gifts.
