Greening Tangub brings more income to the family -- Mayor Tan

by Judith B. Tablan

TANGUB CITY, Misamis Occidental, Jan. 11 (PIA) -- The local government unit here, will continue its greening program to act as buffer to landslides and floodings in the highland barangays.

“We started the project in 1992, even when global warming and climate change was not the hot issue of the day and we intend to step up the project in the city, this year, also to add food on the table of the household beneficiaries,” City Mayor Philip Tan, said.

He said the tall mahogany trees that now line up the barangay roads and the productive fruit farm in Barangay Kimat are the result of this project.

For the second time of his incumbency, massive tree planting became one of the priority agenda of his administration, as he distributed high value fruit tree seedlings and forest trees to the different barangays.

The Mayor dreams of making Tangub City as the fruit basket of Misamis Occidental and to make fruits available even to ordinary folks of the city, and for added income to the family.

Even tourist would come to Tangub, not only for the Dalit Festival and the Christmas Symbols Festival, but also for the affordable and sweet fruits available in the city.

Since July 2010 up to October 2011, fruit tree seedlings distributed include rambutan, 2,631, durian-2,790, lanzones, 1,369, pomelo, 1,885, and marang-1,187.

Forest trees include mahogany, 11,436, jasmine, 1,528, balite, 650, and Brazilian tree, 250, giant bamboo, 600, rubber, 4,300 and cacao, 4,100. (PIO/PIA-10 Mis. Occ.)
