Tree-mendous work

Treemendous work

THE PRUNING of the palm trees in Finestrat’s municipal green areas was pronounced complete earlier this week by the city council.

Council workers pruned palm trees of the Washintoniana variety on the boulevard, in La Cala and in urbanisations.

Finestrat’s Councillor of Environment, Technical Services and Works inspected the boulevard – where it is necessary to prune the trees twice a year – on Tuesday:

‘Pruning is carried out to prevent fruit and leaves from falling on the road, causing dirt and even damage. It is also important to prune the trees as these palms are present in areas of high traffic’.

The first palm trees to be pruned were those in La Cala, where there are more than 100 – especially in l’Avenida Marina Maixa, the main access area to the beach and also where ‘most of the bars and restaurants with terraces are concentrated’.

Works continued later on the boulevard and in urbanisations.
