The town of Sax hosted last month the 1st Urban Tree Journey, aimed to professionals in the field (forest technicians, students, biologists, educators and environmental managers, area politicians, etc.)
It was a journey for debate and understanding, opening up new ideas and perspectives for better management and conservation of trees in cities.
Gerard Passola was one of the speakers of this Conference and spoke about the need for local administrations to take preventive measures, to promote the life of urban trees, instead of employing policies that are too protectionist.
Here is the video summary of his speech:

One of the jobs we do from Doctorarbol is to place lightning rods on singular trees that need it, like this Secuoia of Pamplona. We were working there a few weeks ago. You can see the process a bit in these photographs:
