THE Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), through the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (Cenro)-Sicon, had seized illegally cut lumbers in the province of Zamboanga del Norte, a DENR official announced Friday, February 26, 2021.

DENR Regional Information Officer Rosevirico Tan said the illegal cut lumber was seized around 1 a.m. Wednesday in Tamao village, Baliguian, Zamboanga del Norte.

Tan said the apprehension was made following information received by Quick Response Team (QRT) Focal Person Allan Nalug that a stockpile of undocumented lumbers was seen abandoned near the highway of Tamao village.

Seized were some 185 flitches of Falcata lumbers with a total volume of 934.78 board feet, based on the report of Cenro-Siocon headed by Rey Jalandoni.

Tan said the confiscated illegally cut lumbers were deposited at Cenro-Siocon for proper disposition.

He said investigation is underway to determine ownership of the lumber. (SunStar Zamboanga)
