Phytosanitary management
One of the aims of the AMB in its maintenance of the network of metropolitan parks is to engage in a sustainable and environmentally friendly management, carrying out initiatives to improve the parks' biodiversity and environmental quality.

To meet this overall objective, the maintenance of the parks must not be an interference or create environmental pollution, and a comprehensive pest and disease control programme has been put in place throughout the entire parks network in recent years. The guidelines for the proper management of pests, in order of priority, are:
  • Careful maintenance work so that the vegetation is vigorous and more resistant to pests and disease.
  • Constant evaluation of the tolerance threshold of the disease and the consequences for users, to minimise preventive treatments and perform curative treatment if necessary.
  • The introduction of biological controls, by releasing insects that prey on the pest or are parasites on it, which help to control it as it develops under natural conditions.
  • Use of localised treatments with endotherapy, a system that means the product can be injected directly into the plant and which prevents emissions of the product and inconvenience to users.
