The staff of the Junta de Andalucía has managed to stabilise the crack of the Peana de Serón

It is the largest tree in Andalusia and has been declared a Natural Monument of a biotic nature.
La Peana holm oak is a specimen of holm oak (Quercus ilex) from the Filabres mountain range. It is located in the municipality of Serón.

The delegate for Sustainable Development, Raquel Espín, took part in the Provincial Environment Council, which was held in the Francisco Villaespesa Library in the capital. The meeting dealt with issues related to the conservation of natural heritage and biodiversity, highlighting the possibility of approving a restoration project for “La Peana”, in the municipality of Serón.

At the Council, the current state of this Natural Monument was presented, and the staff of the Junta de Andalucía have been watching over it at all times, carrying out monitoring and evolution actions, as well as confirming that the crack has stabilised. The delegate explained that “in just a few days an initial emergency action was carried out, followed by a second, more specific action, with the collaboration of the Regional Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development, through its Plant Health laboratory, where all the necessary analyses were carried out to study the state of the largest tree in Andalusia”.

The Junta has highlighted the important work carried out by the environmental workers in the care and conservation of “La Peana”. They have found that it has a crack about 4 m long and about 8 cm wide that goes from the base to one of the main branches.

Likewise, a restoration project promoted by the Asociación Monumento Natural Encina La Peana has been presented. The members of the Council agreed on the need for the project to be reviewed by the technicians of the Territorial Delegation, bearing in mind that the project involves between 19 and 29 concrete foundations with dimensions of 1mx1mx up to 1.5m deep.

The owners of the land where “La Peana” is located, as well as the environmental groups in the area have congratulated the Junta de Andalucía for its work and for having fulfilled its commitments with the installation of the fencing and signage, which will be put up shortly, as well as for all the work being carried out by the REMTA service.

During the Provincial Council, the head of the Natural Protected Areas Service, María Algaba, presented the annual report on activities and results in the Protected Areas of the Natura 2000 Network, corresponding to the year 2021. At this same point, Vicky Schwarzer, from the AMAYA agency, presented the flora conservation actions carried out by the Botanical Gardens Network of Almeria.

For his part, the head of the Hunting Department, Emilio Retamosa, explained the draft of the “Order approving the methods for the control of hunting predators and establishing the accreditation of the people who control them in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia”. At this point, both the ecologists and the members of the Andalusian Hunting Federation agreed on the importance of the work of hunters in caring for the environment and the damage caused by poachers.
