Trees of local interest

The Catalogue of Trees of Local Interest contains the tree, shrub and palm tree specimens of greatest worth in the streets and gardens of Barcelona, whether this is for their age, rarity, aesthetic qualities or historical worth. Including them in this catalogue ensures that they will be conserved and that there is no way for them to be disposed of or affected.

The drawing up of this catalogue stemmed from the Ordinances on environmental protection and quality of life passed by Barcelona City Council in 1983. The species to be included in the catalogue are chosen based on assessment parameters which analyse the interesting specimens or planted areas located in the city.

The factors which are taken into account when including a tree in this catalogue are mainly age, dimensions, history and aesthetic qualities.
