France, la mort des Platanes du Canal du Midi, ici encore bordé d'arbres près de Capestang

Tutelary shadow of a centuries-old heritage, the plane trees that line the 42,000 some 240 km from the Canal du Midi will be sacrificed. Plagued since 2006 by an incurable disease by the name of Ceratocystis platani, the tree canopy is now the subject of logging plans and campaigns for replanting by the government to try to save its ranking in world heritage , decided by the UNESCO in 1996.
