Retenons : Pruning= taille
Ne faites pas les autruches... taillez vos palmiers, allez voir leur état.
Le rôle de conseil des collectivités : est-ce bien le cas chez nous partout ? ..... pas sûr.
Attention, il s’agit la province d’Alicante SP donc bien plus au sud, ce qui pour nous, devrait impliquer un décalage # d’un mois. Avec les pièges * (chinois ?) dont nous espérons que vous êtes tous dotés, vérifiez qu’il n’y a plus de capture. Sinon, par précaution, appliquez ou faites appliquer une solution type goudron de cicatrisation et ou insecticide sur les bords de coupe. Bien désinfecter les outils, quand vous changez de stipes.
* attention, peu de pieges distance mini des stipes 15 m
