, the promenade will have three times as many trees and twice as many palm trees and flowerbeds
The signposting and preparation for the scheduled pruning and felling of some trees on Palma’s Maritime Promenade has begun this morning. This first clearing phase will last until 30 December and mainly affects the median line in front of the Balearic Oceanographic Centre. Subsequently, from 2 to 5 January 2023, a new phase will be started that involves reserving space for further felling in the area in front of the Gran Melià Victoria.
More trees, palm trees and gardens
As the proposal presented by the Martínez Lapeña-Torres Arquitectes architectural study explains, around 70 of the felled trees are expected to be replanted. As a result, the promenade will have three times as many trees and twice as many palm trees and flowerbeds (increasing from 9.7 to 20% in an area of 36,487 square metres). This will result in a total of 1,820 new trees, including 512 palm trees, 69 replanted specimens and 20 new species.
