    Hello, Nisa. You might do a YouTube search for "air layering olive". Air layering is a method of forcing roots to grow in a little packet you make along the trunk. Once the roots grow in the packet, you can cut it off of the old trunk and roots right below the packet, making a new shorter tree.
