16 Fruit trees planted at the Old Finca, Ibiza
At the hills of the Morna valley an old Finca will be renovated. The Finca, a typical Ibicenco farm, is situated on eight-hectares of land, which has been abandoned for years. A pine forest surrounds the former agricultural land and precious old olive trees, some magnificent evergreen oaks and sabina’s are found on the site.

The zones consist different scales and landscape types: the greatest part is “Forest “ ( 5 ha) the “Agricultural landscape” (3 ha), with olive trees, fruit orchards and different terraces and the swimming pool. The “ Oasis” close to the Finca, is a more intensive and lush planted area. For each zone a design and planting plan is made, using plants, which require as little water as possible and are hardy in the arid climate of Ibiza.
In 2016 we started the second phase, with the planting 28 olive trees at the entrance of the site. Last March we planted on two terraces 16 fruit trees in a planting pattern that allows to be densified in the future.
