SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Oct 18 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife Roads area will invest 105,385 euros in the landscape improvement of TF-11, the San Andrés road, in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in an action that will last at least five and a half months to make it more functional and comfortable this way to its users.
The first vice president and counselor for Roads, Enrique Arriaga, indicates in a note that a comprehensive action will be carried out to improve the environment of the TF-11 with the cleaning of the slopes and the landscape rethinking of the area, which implies the removal of the dragon trees and their location where they can grow best and are not an obstacle for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists.
A study of the situation in which these trees were found concludes that the dragon trees are not developing optimally as a result of the narrow tree pits in which they are found, and they need to be replanted for their correct growth and their general physiological state is not the appropriate one, since most have mutilations and loss of arms, holes, detachment of bark, strangulation and unbalanced glasses.
The insular director of Roads, Tomás Félix García, points out that with this study on the table, the Cabildo chooses to remove the dragon trees from the current location and replant those that are in a good state of conservation on the margins of the green areas located in the vicinity of San Andrés while some others will complete the landscape improvement of the areas of Barranco Grande and El Chorrillo, also in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Taking advantage of this action, the conservation workers of green areas will do an exhaustive cleaning and eradication of invasive species such as the cat’s tail and will proceed to seal the tree pits.
