Palm tree treated for red palm weevil

(Photo: Taller de Empleo 'Parques de Jimena') It was bound to happen. The palm trees in the village are under attack from the lethal red palm weevil. This one was being treated yesterday at Llano de la Victoria. It is a beautiful example that has been there ever since Prospero remembers the village -almost 40 years. It would be a great shame to lose it. (Note: while the employment scheme workers are up there, couldn't they do something about the vegetation on the bell tower that threatens to eat into its core, as does a fig tree on the tower on El Paseo?). More on the dreaded bug and Jimena's trees under attack - in 2008!
