The Town Hall of Javea, in collaboration with the Cirne Foundation has embarked on a cataloguing campaign of all the ancient and unique heritage trees in the municipality.

To this end they have edited multilingual brochures in Valenciano, Spanish, English and German requesting the collaboration of the public. All those who believe to know the location of one of these specimens are asked to report them  to the Foundation or the Municipal Tourist Information offices (if they have problems communicating in Spanish or Valenciano).

The summer season was chosen  to carry out the inventory phase since most holiday homes are occupied at this time of year. In fact, most of the singular trees are located on private property.

The Town Hall emphasises that the goal is to catalogue the collection of local tree specimens, not only to protect them, but also to educate the public about this important part of the local heritage. One of the objectives of the project is to publish a comprehensive catalogue of the local tree specimens and prepare an educational exhibition specifically aimed at schoolchildren so that they may learn to appreciate and respect the local plant heritage. A special route or tour of this network of special trees may arise in the future and be offered to interested residents and tourists on specific dates, subject to agreements with the owners.

The Town Hall wishes to assure landowners that owning a distinctive and unique tree would not necessarily create problems other than the prohibition of uprooting it. To the contrary, it would in fact create several advantages, including the possibility for council staff to assist with pruning, maintenance and pest control.

This campaign is co-sponsored by the Cirne Foundation and the municipal departments of  Environment, Agriculture and Tourism.
