The operation is concentrating on the town centre, seafront paseos and beaches of both Almuñécar and La Herradura, which will include a total of 8,000 palm trees.
“This year we have started the campaign a couple of days later than usual, in order to cause less inconvenience to tourists enjoying the September weather,” said Sr. Aragón, adding, “we have several teams involved to speed up the process so as to avoid the ripe palm fruit littering the pavements and ground.”
Not only will they be pruning the palm fonds, but they will also be applying treatment for the palm tree “evil weevils.”
Work began on San Cristobal and Puerta del Mar before moving onto Calle Guadix and its side streets.
