    I'm thinking we don't have any olive experts here, brother.

    I just heard of it (maybe not but I don't recall) and know nothing about xillela nor the olives. An other worrisome disease, moreover with a large spectrum of potential hosts.

    You need to give us a lot more information. Pictures? Bacterial leaf scorch (BLS), caused by Xylella fastidiosa, is generally considered untreatable though some time can be gained with oxytetracycline treatments.

    But there is no way to determine if that is what your tree has with the limited information given.
