PERSONNEL of the National Irrigation Administration's (NIA) Zamboanga Sibugay Irrigation Management Office (IMO) and members of the Marple Irrigators Association Incorporation have planted 1,000 mahogany seedlings in two villages in the province.

The NIA Zamboanga Sibugay IMO said in a statement that the undertaking was in line with the agency's annual tree planting activity, which was held last week.

The mahogany seedlings were planted in Gaulan and Ditay villages in the town of Diplahan, Zamboanga Sibugay where the irrigation systems -- Lower Sibuguey I and Upper Sibuguey -- are located.

The tree planting activity, done annually simultaneous nationwide, is also in accordance to the National Greening Program of the country.
