Olive is named after The Saint Helena Olive Tree. 
In the wild, it went extinct in 1994. The last living specimen cultivated in captivity died in December 2003, despite aggressive conservation efforts. 
Human encroachment and activity were the cause of the tree’s extinction. People, exploiting the natural resources of the island for more than four centuries, had deforested large swaths of the island to graze ani-
mals like goats. The tree became confined to too small an area, and because of its limited population, was unable to remain genetically viable. 
Saint Helena Olive is a prime example of why tree planting is so important.
