DRY weather is complicating the regeneration of forests that have been affected by forest fires throughout Alicante Province. Wild fires have ravaged more than 3,300 hectares in the last three years, mostly in the northern interior of the province, which is also the most affected by rainfall shortage.
Biologist Professor Carles Mansanet explained that the lack of rain has a negative impact on the regeneration of vegetation, exposing them to diseases such as those that are already seriously affecting the pine forests in the south of the province by creating conditions that favour the spread of pests such as the Tomicus Piniperda or common pine beetle.
