Trees planted by FKNK hunters’ federation volunteers over the weekend at L-Ahrax in Mellieha have been vandalized between 24 and 25 February, the federation said.

Many of the Aleppo pine trees were pulled from the roots.

FKNK planted the trees on Sunday 18 February during an activity, ‘Ingawduh u Niehdi Hsiebi Flimkien’ (We enjoy and take care of it together).

Tamarisk trees which were planted a few metres away during a similar activity a year ago were also vandalised. Most of the trees were planted by people who had benefited from Puttinu Cares, the federation said.

“During this month’s activity, the Environment ministry provided the federation with 100 Aleppo Pine trees and 50 African Tamarisk trees to be planted at L-Aħrax,” FKNK said. “Now most trees have been pulled from the roots and vandalised.”
