Easter weather topples 130-year-old palm tree

1 min read

The torrential rain and strong winds that bombarded Torrevieja over the Easter weekend were so severe that they caused a 130-year-old and thirteen-metre-high palm tree located in the virgin beach of Cala Ferris to topple and fall to the ground.

The environmentally friendly group Salvemos Lo Ferris, who predominantly campaign to prevent this last part of undeveloped coastline from being developed, also attribute the destruction of the tree to neglect on the part of the town hall.

The wall that was built in recent years by the owners of part of the land may have been a contributing factor as well, say the group, as the construction could have damaged the tree’s roots.

The fallen palm tree was located close to the wall but outside its perimeter in ‘no man’s land’.
