It is long weekendwill be the first of the year where all the jacarandas from Mexico City will be fully flowered, so tree specialists recommend admiring and enjoying them, since their purple color will be present for a short time.
José Carlos Martínez, Director of Innovation at We reforest Mexicoexplained that, until the month of April, the thousands of flowers of this tree will be able to be appreciated.
“In Mexico City we have different trees that we recognize by the way in which they bloom, the jacaranda It has a characteristic purple color. And they have helped us to have an identity as a city, so we have learned to value them and even defend them,” he explained.
However, Martínez recognized that this assessment process has taken time, since until a few years ago, citizens did not take the time to look upappreciate all the trees. But now the jacarandas They have become the favorite trees of locals and tourists.
Therefore, there is a route to appreciate them, starting with the downtown area, in the Alameda, where dozens of jacarandas they inhabit, followed by Parque México y España, Paseo de la Reforma, Concepción Béistegui, Chimalistac and Ciudad Universitaria.
“The jacaranda It is a tree with a very different structure, they are distinguished by these shapes of their trunks, where the branches go to one side or the other. The trees are different and that’s a very good thing,” he pointed out.
