Kind of mixing up, olives and olive trees aren't you? Also, refining the oil make it a processed food, as the tree does not just produce an oil. 17% of the Olive is oil that can be extracted easily.

Or is this just one of those things, where you put up a wrong answer in hopes of someone giving you the correct one?

The eucalyptus tree is known to produce a highly flammable liquid. Eucalyptus trees contain oil glands in their leaves, which release volatile oils into the air. These oils are highly flammable and can contribute to the tree’s flammability. In areas prone to wildfires, eucalyptus trees are considered highly flammable due to the presence of these oils.

I learned this today: Koalas have a specialized diet of eucalyptus leaves, which are toxic to many other animals.

Linseed oil

True. Very volatile. But another word for Linseed is Flax Seed, and this topic is on trees.

Though I also thought of mentioning it. As it is one of the only volatile oils I am familiar with as well.
