SAN PEDRO: The town is set to plant 311 new trees

San Pedro will see 311 trees planted in a bid to expand its green space, according to deputy mayor, Javier Garcia.

The first part of the development will be to conduct a report into trees’ overall health, as well as their structural stability.

Species’ suitability for individual areas will be studied, as well as those areas that have lower densities of trees.

The second part of the plan will be to implement the findings of the report, including to replant 278 trees that are diseased or dangerous.
