Autumn Olive

Created By: Unity College


Autumn Olive (Elaeagnus umbellata) is a shrub or small tree. Autumn Olive has green leaves, with silvery undersides. This shrub is part of the tour, because it is an invasive species, and is displacing many native species. In addition, it has pretty red berries, which grow in late summer and early fall.

Autumn Olive can be found growing along forest edges in the park and is common around Spring Lake. It is an understory species in this spot, growing underneath many other trees. In the picture, these trees are leafless, and the Autumn Olives have all their leaves. In this spot, it can be found off of the trail, away from the lake.
