We talked with the «guardian» of the Botanic Garden of the University of Valencia about the red palm weevil. The arboriculture technician José Plumed has been a pioneer in the use of some vegetable sanitation practices in palm trees, a new method that is still perfecting.
Will palm trees disappear?
How has the work in the Botanic Garden changed ever since the weevil’s alarm went off?
Which prevention methods do you use?
Can a plague like this affect the biodiversity of the area?
But if palm trees attract tourism, why don’t politicians get a hundred per cent involved?
