Salobreña Palm-Tree Pruning

palm pruning in salobreñaThe private company charged with maintaining public parks and gardens in Salobreña, ATHISA, has stepped up the pace of palm pruning around town.

Salobreña has 2,500 palm trees and the rush is because in autumn the palms start shedding their fruit (dates), which make one hell of a mess on the pavements and roads, as well as the risk of dry palm fonds coming free and braining somebody.

Councillor for the environment, Martín Valenzuela, has been out and about inspecting this work, and the simultaneous gardening jobs – grass cutting – in the gardens and parks. He pointed out that the unusually hot weather and rain has caused the grass to give an extra spurt of growth before the winter weather sets in.
