Together with the Sรฃo Miguel Environment and Climate Change Service, the teams, using mechanical methods, carried out the effective removal of this climber species, which was already widespread on the southern side of the Lagoa das Furnas (lagoon). The waste resulting from this action was carefully burnt to avoid new outbreaks of this species. This area will be subject to a maintenance process to eliminate any new specimens of the species that may appear.
