Alert for strange death of palm trees on Orono Boulevardi

An unusual spectacle can be seen from the flower bed At an altitude of 100 bis between Orono, Brown and Gumes. is about A palm tree fell forward, completely folded in itself. Also, the other plant in front of it looks dry, with no leaves.

Spokespersons for the municipality’s environment and public space announced that This is the only palm tree that is in that state, and considered the hypothesis that it could be attacked by a beetle (beetle) which eats the green part of the palm tree.

In these cases, a phytosanitary treatment should be carried out, but this time they were late.

For his part, a former environmental officer of the municipality and an expert on the subject, Angela Villademoros, believed that the plant presents, at first glance, other symptoms that have nothing to do with the cause of the beetle.

He explained that this palm tree had been bent for a long time, and although he did not delve into the particular case, he explained that “This curvature (as presented by a fallen palm tree) occurs when the plant loses some of the components that give it resistance to the stipe. These components are two: cellulose and lignin, palm trees contain more than the former and are therefore more flexible. There are pathogens that act on cellulose and that is why the supporting structures get deformed”, he elaborated.

Vildemoros explained that a deeper study of what happened in this case would be necessary and ventured that there may have been a combination of factors: “The great drought and lack of irrigation exacerbated the condition of the plants, which increased pollution and urban pollution.” also suffer stress because they are not in their natural habitat.

And with regard to insect attack, he said that if it was the product of the action of beetles, other symptoms such as frizz and dry leaves would appear on the upper part of the palm tree. It is also rare that this beetle kills the plant.

“I think it’s a disease caused by fungi, because of the symptoms seen in this palm tree,” he said.

“I can’t say exactly if I’m not going to see the plant in that place, but I can assure you that the corymella (beetle) has nothing to do with the curvature presented by this plant,” he indicated.

The expert stressed that it is necessary to carry out pest control on different species.

In the meantime, Environmental groups take note of Orono palm tree status And they will ask the municipality for a survey to know the status of different tree species present in different areas of the city.
