Olive tagging

This olive has been tagged with some plastic. Often you see painted trunks. These painted trunks indicate the edge of a grove and so it is clear for the neighbours where another grove starts.

Here, the plastic, I believe indicates that the owner has decided to only have one trunk per tree. So the owner has chosen the trunk to be retained and marked with the plastic ribbon. At a point someone will come round and chainsaw the other trunk down.
