Diseased 102-year-old eucalyptus tree on Rosia Road removed on health and safety grounds

Published by GBC News

A 102-year-old Eucalyptus tree on Rosia Road is no more.

The Government told GBC the tree had a fungal disease and needed to be removed on health and safety grounds, as it had become a liability in a high transit area for both pedestrians and vehicles.

According to Greenarc’s records, the tree had been brought to Gibraltar in late 1921, from Granada.

A replacement tree will be planted.
