The socialists in Bigastro are fast turning into ecologists.
First they complained about the palm trees that had not been cleaned which could have been affected by the weevil. Then they showed concern about the pine trees at La Pedrera that are in danger from the insect that has devastated trees on the Sierra Orihuela.
Now they point out that the prunings from palm trees that were taken to the eco-park on the 5th and 13th of November have just been left there untreated. They should have been sprayed with pesticides. The socialists say that, if the council do not have the staff to deal with this, they should employ a certified company to do it for them.
