Segovia Off The Beaten Path: 18 reviews and 38 photos
When you are driving around Segovia Province, you will see numerous Meditterrainean Pine Trees with big gashes on their sides, as if some vandals have been at them.
In actual fact this is done officially (although it looks pretty ugly). It is a way of harvesting the resin in the pine tree.
I don't know what effect this has on the tree and its longevity. I can imagine it helps parasites penetrate the tree and do it lots of damage, but it seems to be a longstanding procedure, so perhaps it doesn't really effect the tree.
