There is a legend that it was a dogwood tree. That is why dogwoods are crooked , because the lord said nobody would ever be crucified on a dogwood again.

No factual information is given in The Bible or from any ancient historians regarding this matter. The Bible writers were concentrating on the fact of the crucifixion, rather than incidentals. Olive trees certainly grew near Jerusalem Jesus' time, as many were cut down by Titus during the siege of Jerusalem in AD70 - but again, this proves nothing regarding the timber used for the cross.
