NATURAL LUNG: The surface to be recovered is equivalent to 25 football fields, Mijas town hall reported.
MORE than 10,000 trees will be planted in what Mijas town hall has tagged as ‘the town’s largest reforestation ever’. An investment of nearly €49,000 has made it possible to start bringing the 25-hectares Los Borbotes natural park back to life.
The area inside the Sierra de Mijas mountains was burnt by the blazes in 1992 and, since then, a procedure of this kind had never been set on in there.
First steps were already taken, including moving away the species considered by the experts as invasive for the environment. Special machinery was used also to prepare the land for the plantation of trees and seeds.
When the reforestation is done – which the town hall expects by the end of next month – the density will be risen to up to 435 trees per hectare.
