WATCH: Pine trees being planted at Saqqajja Hill

Following yesterday’s rem0val by Infrastructure Malta of dead trees from Saqqajja Hill to make way for new trees, planting of the new trees started today.

TVM visited the site this morning, and could observe the rest of the removal process of the dead trees, as well as the arrival of a number of young pine trees which were immediately planted in their place.

The removal of trees because of infrastructural projects created a controversy in recent weeks. Infrastructure Malta stated that apart from the pine trees on Saqqajja Hill, another 539 indigenous trees are being planted at Imriehel, Birkirkara, Ħal Balzan, Ħ’Attard and Ta’ Qali as part of the Central Link project.
