Technicians and climber experts from the Parks and Gardens Service have launched a campaign to review the eucalyptus trees over 20 meters in the La Seda garden, some work carried out every six months to verify that the specimens are “in perfect condition state, guaranteeing the safety of residents who pass through this area every day, “explained municipal sources.
“We are inspecting these specimens in depth so that there are no dry branches, bark, pests, or any health problem that could pose a danger to the neighbors,” added the responsible councilor, José Guillén.
For the supervision of this large specimen of more than 25 meters and 450 cm of perimeter of the garden (in the image) both a lifting platform and the climbing system are used, carefully reviewing those branches that are not accessed or that are not they are clearly seen using mechanical means.
These reviews, two a year, are added to those carried out after an alert (orange or red) due to rain or wind, added the same sources. In addition, the City Council also carries out the application of endotherapy in the 250 specimens distributed throughout the municipality.
This non-invasive system allows a substance to be injected into the trees that absorbs even the sap and acts against pests, specifically the processionary and larvae, without causing any damage to the specimen. A technique that is complemented by the placement of small plugs in the holes made in the tree so that it is fully protected.
The application of this technique has a proven efficiency superior to that carried out by means of the system of pulverization of the specimens, since the durability of the product within the tree is estimated to be about 2 years, they concluded from the City Council.
