Making Christmas tions from trees felled to prevent forest fires

In the picturesque village of Arbúcies, Girona, a family has started a unique Christmas tradition: making traditional "tió" logs from the trunks of cork oaks felled during forest clearance operations. In a small workshop set up in the garage of their house, the Rovira Hernández family has been making "tions" for four years, with the aim of "giving a purpose to this wood, which is not suitable as firewood because it is very volatile".
