Since the devastating fire in the Parque Natural del Montgó on September 11th 2014, things have changed a lot on the popular plateau of La Plana. The Ayuntamiento de Xàbia, in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment, has carried out work over the past 13 or so months to try and recover the forestry area and stop the infestations that have been feeding on the pine trees that escaped the devastating inferno.

Emergency work in the first few months after the tragic event saw the removal of burnt trees, treatment for the survivors, encouraging the return of wildlife to the area, building anti-erosion barriers on the steep slopes and the restoration of ancient terrace walls which were at the risk of collapse. Then in September this year, steps had to be taken to respond to the discovery of an infestation of boring insects that were feeding on the pine trees.

Since then, forestry brigades led by the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia has made a great effort to remove affected trees and shredding them to create biomass. They have carried out this work of both public land and private areas were authorisation had been granted by owners. The change in the landscape of La Plana has been so considerable that the Departments of the Environment and of Services at the Ayuntamiento have decided to take stock of the situation and, above all, address the future of the management of the forest park.

To that end, a conference has been organised to discuss this issue with those who live within the zone and other people who are interested in the environment during which biologists and forestry experts will present results of the recovery programme and the proposals for the future management of the area. Entitled "400 días después del incendio en el Montgó" ("400 days after the fire on the Montgó"), the conference will be on Wednesday 2nd December at 7.30pm in the auditorium of the Soler Blasco Museum in the heart of the historic centre.

Municipal biologist Ignasi Astor accompanied mayor José Chulvi and councillors Doris Courcelles (Environment) and Kika Mata (Services) to view the result of the work of recent months and explained the need to involve residents on the forest planning.
