Tree Felling Boob

In the race to get Plaza Kelibia in Almuñécar finished for Semana Santa it appears that the Town Hall bypassed necessary steps, which the CA has been quick to denounce.

Green Women Against Tree Felling

The Almuñécar-based women’s ecologist group, La Asociación de Mujeres Ecologistas Sexitanas, has denounced what they claim to be “extreme tree Felling” on the Paseo del Altillo gardens. They say that around a dozen emblematic trees were cut down from at base level, especially ‘ficus’ (rubber-plant trees) near the car-park entrance. They consider that these trees had formed a fundamental part of the panorama.

The reason for this is because they are literally destroying the pavement, thanks to their ever-increasing girth.
