All indications point towards the fire in Motril’s Parque de Las Americas being the work of an arsonist. Around 50 palm trees went up in flames around 21.30h on Friday the 21st of February.
The Almuñécar Town Hall has announced that it has begun cleaning up the town’s palm trees, starting in the town centre. Exciting stuff, eh!
As part of the renovation work on Almuñécar’s Plaza Kelibia, the palm trees that graced the square have been cut down, rather than removed for replanting. This action has been criticised by the chief opposition party, the CA. According to the CA, some of the trees were over 10m in height and were very representative…
The annual palm-tree pruning operation has begun in Almuñécar and La Herradura. The operation has started off concentrating on the town centres and paseos, explained the Councillor for the Environment, Luis Aragón.
Did you know that the Almuñécar Town Hall spends 68,000 euros tidying up the municipalities palm trees… and we’re only talking about ones in public areas, such as parks, gardens and the beaches?
Are there any gentlemen out there who think theirs is not quite as big as other peoples, or perhaps not quite as erect? Is it well trimmed and clean? These are all important issues to consider when talking palm trees.
Now, we’ve all had it up to our eyeballs in construction work shenanigans in recent times but now it seems that our humble friend the palm tree is falling foul to restructuring plans. 150 palms are being uprooted along Motril’s Avenida de Salobreña, much to the horror of environment group, Buxus, who fear that many of them will not survive the replanting process.
