Garajonay - Can the Laurisilva preserve the Canary Island La Gomera from desertification?

It is spring, and tourists from all over the world visit the Canary island La Gomera to find recreation here after the long gray of the winter months. They expect a green landscape, palms, banana plantations, prospering almond trees and a sea of flowers. But in spring 2012 they find a brown, bare landscape suffering under the extreme desertification with only few green oases in the valleys and canyons. In some parts of the island there has been no rain for nearly one year. Only the Laurisilva in the mountainous regions of the island, the Garajonay National Park, seems to be able to cope with the extreme dryness. Can the evergreen Laurisilva protect the island from complete desertification?
