Bad Timing for Pruning Trees?

ALM tree pruning OnLThe chief opposition party in Almuñécar has denounced that the trees on the Friday-market square are being drastically cut back/pruned in Spring.

The CA/PP says that this is the third consecutive year that the Mayor has ordered the trees pruned or cut back when the tree sap is already flowing and the branches in bloom.

The said square, Paseo Blas Infante, whose use alternates between municipal parking, market area and fairground, has many ficus trees, which are the ones receiving the out-of-season attention, says the party Spokesman, Ángel Ortega.

A few months back the Seaside Gazette received a readers’ letter asking why the willow tree in the kiddies park on the other side of Río Verde in the P-4 was being aggressively cut back. As yet we have not had the opportunity to approach the Councillor for the Environment or the Head of the Garden & Parks Department of the Almuñécar Town Hall.
