The provincial Boards of Agriculture within Andalucía have been out planting trees in their respective provinces to celebrate the Día de Andalucía.
Between them, they have planted 500 saplings of trees that naturally belong to the region – no Triffids, then.
Carmen Crespo, who heads the Granada one, said that this action is a “demonstration of the Junta’s desire to preserve our natural spaces for future generations.”
The planting work took place simultaneously in the eight provinces of Andalucía: Almería, Granada, Jaén, Málaga, Huelva, Cádiz, Sevilla and Córdoba.
Granada decided to choose the Parque Natural Sierra de Baza, as the spot for its tree-planting activity yesterday; in the area of La Fraguara, to be more precise. Accordingly 42 Spanish oaks were planted.
That number of tree has a special significance: 42 is the number of years that have passed since a referendum was held, resulting in Andalucía becoming an autonomous region.
