‘The Carob Cemetry’, that was our reference to the visit we recently had in Wied Ghollieq limits of San Gwann and Msida. This article is about the number of carob trees, some of them old that have been removed because of the building of the Kappara Junction. It seems they were removed not when a tree should be uprooted and planted somewhere else, and also uprooting seems that was carried out not in a professional way. It is unfair that these old carob trees had to be removed for the building of a new road. We all know that the carob trees are protected by law. According to the legal notice 12 of 2001 which is about trees and woodlands states that the carob tree is one of the protected trees. There are fines related to the removal of such trees which is 24,000 euros for each tree that has more of 10 years of age. From the photos taken we are assuming that they have more of 10 years due to its trunks. In addition to the above one ends up with few questions; Were they removed at the best time? Is the goverment going to take the responsability for this? Is the law enforecement for everyone? However we definetely need more awareness about such situations.
