Tree Planting on Cerro Gordo

Pupils and members of the parents association for IES Al Andalus went on a tree-planting expedition on Cerro Gordo, La Herradura. All told, around a hundred Spanish oaks, pines and carob trees were planted.

“It was a great day out,” said the Councillor for the Environment, Luis Aragón, who participated himself.

The party was organized into two groups so that while one was out planting, the other tour walked about the area, accompanied by the forestry expert, Carlos Ferrón, who explained about the value of the natural environment. And then the roles of the two groups was reversed.

The Councillor praised the volunteers from the OJE, who helped those with less experience to dig the holes for the planting of the saplings, as well as choose the best spot each time.

“The planting of the trees was authorized by the Junta de Andalucia, all of which was carried out under the watchful eye of Carlos Ferrón,” explained Councillor Aragón.
