During spring, we should not be pruning our city trees!

Prohibit pruning trees this spring

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 8.03.33 AMThe Mayor of La Paz banned pruning and felling.

Violators will be punished according to the damage they can cause to trees or soil stability.

The ideal for this activity season is from April to September.


Not only in La Paz but also all across Bolivia, we should be more aware and take better care of the trees in the cities that provide us with beauty, shade and oxygen! An not only in spring but throughout the whole year.

In Santa Cruz for example, we loose the opportunity to have bibosis, pajarillas, tajibos, jacarandas, toborochis that could provide us with excellent shade and color. The avenue to the Trompillo from the second ring for example could be replicated all over!

I saw many trees pruned horribly to stay away from the electricity grid, they look unnatural and maybe it is time that our electric companies come up with better solutions.
