Arona removes invasive plant species from its nursery



Arona has begun to replace plant species considered invasive to other native species. It is the first municipality in the Canary Islands to  replace plants, flowers and exotic trees and replace with other indigenous plants.

Trees and plants such as the date palm, acacia, lantana or cat’s claw, whilst exotic have the ability to distribute and displace native flora, and will no longer be used. Instead they will be replaced by others such as Guaydil, Cardones or the Canarian palm.

The change from one species to another resulted from a comprehensive study by a company specialising in botany, who determined which  plants could be considered invasive.
