The City Council of Caravaca de la Cruz, through its Department of Public Services, Parks and Gardens, is carrying out the necessary work to replace the trees that had been felled for several years in La Corredera.
"A specialized company is in charge of the work of raising, detoconiating and planting seven new species, which make up for the notable faults along the promenade," as reported by the councilor who runs the area, Monica Sanchez.
The new species will be large-sized trees, with an average caliber of 25 centimeters.
Four of them belong to the species 'Fraxinus excelsior' (common or broadleaf ash) and three remaining of them will be 'Acer platanoides' (royal maple).
The mayor Monica Sanchez recalled that this action had been pending for a long time and was a consequence of the Anthracnose disease, which in 2012 began to seriously affect a part of the woodland of the municipality of the species known as Â´Platanos de sombra ', as well as the graphiosis of the elms and a palm damaged by the red weevil.
For several years -he has indicated- "the walk has remained without a good part of its trees, without any measures being taken".
This action is part of the first phase of the plan to improve parks, gardens and green areas, which since last August is developing the Department of Public Services, improved irrigation systems and plantations in spaces such as the Camino del Huerto, El Cejo, Garden City and Huerto de los Frailes Square.
Public areas have also been regenerated, among which are the exterior of the Employment and Training Center and the Elliptical Fountain.
The objective is to progressively improve the maintenance and image of the municipality, paying special attention to public spaces and green areas.
