The ‘Red Ecoverde Marbella’ – which brings together several environmental groups in the city-, has denounced this Thursday the “arboricide” that is being undertaken in the municipality with a new felling of trees on the avenue of Trapiche, located in the neighborhood of Miraflores, as highlighted by this Thursday Fabiola Mora, member of the collective.
The performance took place this Thursday morning with the felling of “13 trees” in the popular Marbella neighborhood, to which are added the specimens removed from the road last November of various species such as melia azedarach, gleditsia triacanthos or platanus hispanica; and that they will be replaced by magnolias, which “have nothing to do with our environmental heritage.”
Mora has denounced that “these trees are not sick, those who are sick are the people and the government team who have decided to commit such a crime “, since it is also eliminating” biodiversity and the plant and tree mass, which is so necessary in a neighborhood so populated and with so much population density ”.
Likewise, it has declared that “the City Council is not complying with all the agreements and pacts to bring to the Sustainable Development Goals ”, for which he has warned that “Marbella is playing the aid that is being given with the Feder funds through the EDUSI program.”
The activist has pointed out that in the Trapiche avenue “you have to fix the sidewalks, but respecting the trees “, highlighting that” they are not sick “, while criticizing that the performance has been undertaken” nightly and treacherously “on New Year’s Eve to replace the copies” with cement. “
“This is one more sample of the GIL era”, lamented the also representative of ‘Marbella Activa’, who recalled that during this period “the environmental heritage was totally reviled and crushed, and today the same is being done”. Thus, he pointed out that this “is a crime that some people are going to take to the European Union (EU) and the Congress of Deputies.”
The member of ‘Marbella for its trees’ Aurora Oliver has shown her outrage that “this street has been loaded”, as well as its biodiversity. On the other hand, Equo has advanced that it works to present a interpellation before the European Commission Through its parliamentary group (The Greens / EFA) to denounce the breach of the conditions by which municipalities such as Marbella, Malaga or Rincón de la Victoria receive European funding from the EDUSI program. In addition, Impulsa Ciudad has also announced that it will denounce logging.
