Fighting the Undergrowth Jávea Town Hall is stepping up the work to remove of invasive plants and waste from the slopes near to the Port Xàbia Environmental Services has allocated workers to strengthen the teams tackling the the forest area near to the port of Javea. Working on the lower slopes of Cap de Sant Antoni, they are removing invasive plants such as agaves, geodetic or vines of the species “cat’s claw”, clearing the native shrubland and removing solid waste dumped there by inconsiderate litterers. The land, which is municipally owned and is included in the Natural Park Montgó, served as a quarry when the port of Javea was built. The cleaning work will continue in coming days and be extended to the area next to the Barranquet of Sant Antoni.
