luisa bone palm trees costa

Orihuela Town Hall has hired a crane with a driver to carry out pruning on palms and other trees in Orihuela Costa.

The cost of the constract is €21,175 including VAT and work started this week on Avenida del Cabo Roig cutting off the bead branches and dates from the palm trees.

Councillor Luisa Boné said it was necessary to cut back the branches and fruit from the palms in order to guarantee the safety of pedestrians and to keep the streets and pavements clean.

She said this work is usually done in the traditional way by workers in harnesses but the Town Hall health and safety service has ordered a crane be used to protect the workers at such heights.
