AN environmentalist group revealed that trees were being interred as developers cleared land in Mojacar.
The Almanzora-Levante branch of Ecologistas en Accion asked the town hall to clarify why pines, carobs and shrubs – the habitat of tortoises and chameleons – had been subjected to the “cruelty of being buried alive.”
Sources at Mojacar town hall recently quoted in the Spanish media explained that the piled-up earth surrounding carobs on a plot of municipally-owned land was “an error.”
The town hall was now taking steps to restore the land to its original state, incompliance with planning laws, the same sources said.
