A TOTAL of 65 Narra seedlings were planted in Sitio Kabanbanan, Makiang village, Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte.

The tree planting activity, which was initiated by the Siocon Municipal Police Station on Friday, July 23, was held in connection to the observance of the 26th Police Community Relations (PCR) Month.

The 42nd Infantry (Tagapagtanggol) Battalion (IB), through the Bravo "Wolfpack" Company headed by First Lieutenant Jessie Jun Ebalan (INF), as well as village officials, policemen and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) personnel joined the tree planting activity.

"It also shows the true sign of the Bayanihan spirit and camaraderie among the people as we help hand in hand in preserving the environment," it said.

The 42IB said in a statement that its troops continuously support its counterparts and stakeholders in their activities as they share a common goal toward a better community.
