DENR employees, volunteers host tree planting

SOME 1,200 employees and volunteers from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here, the Aboitiz Group, the Mechanized Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army and local government of Capas in Tarlac joined in a tree planting activity recently.

The group planted 21,000 seedlings of Narra, Guyabano and other fruit and forest tree species in a two-hectare portion of Camp O’ Donnel military reservation in Capas town of Tarlac.

Dubbed as “One Tree, One Century”, the simultaneous tree planting event which was also held in Cebu was organized by the Aboitiz Group in support of the government’s expanded National Greening Program (eNGP) and part of their corporate social responsibility.

In 2011, the President issued EO 26 declaring the implementation of the National Greening Program as a government priority to reduce poverty, promote food security, environmental stability and biodiversity conservation, and enhance climate change mitigation and adaptation.
