Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal, in order that you may, as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

published on 2.12.2015

On the occasion of the 35th Espinelves Fir Fair, the magazine Divendres of TV3 has visited the town during the first week of December 2015. The biologist and Quèquicom reporter Pere Renom has helped to explain some features of conifers, family trees including fir, spruce, cedar, cypress, pine or redwood. In the Masjoan nursery, located in the same locality, it is found the largest concentration of monumental trees in Catalonia, especially conifers planted mostly by Marià Masferrer between 1860 and 1911. Many of the specimens exceed 40m in height.
