DENR-Kalinga to grow 150,000 seedlings for Green Philippines program

TABUK, Kalinga (4 April) -- In support to the eight priorities of government, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, its provincial office and two community environment and natural resources offices targeted to propagate 150,000 forest tree seedlings under the Green Philippines Program.

According to Forest Management Specialist Noel Barrientos, their office has already started growing seedlings and planned distributed for transplant during planting activities in the province.

He said they will institutionalize the “Kabalikat sa Kalikasan” through social mobilization as partner on the program.

Aside from nurseries established in DENR offices, Barrientos said various sectors have signified their willingness to participate in producing the desired number of seedlings to include schools, religious groups, military and non government organizations.

Holders of socialized industrial forest management agreement, agroforestry farm lease agreement and forest land grazing leases were also tapped to participate.

Barrientos said indigenous species are selected for propagation since they are more adaptable and expected to show better survival rate.

He said DENR has signed a memorandum of agreement with the Kalinga-Apayao State College, their long time partner in this regreening movement last March 7, represented by OIC-PENRO Diego Ambatali and KASC Pres. Eduardo Bagtang and Institute of Agriculture and Forestry Dean Joseph Aguilar.

KASC committed to raise 20,000 seedlings in the college compound.

Identified areas for tree planting activities are roadsides, public parks, open and denuded forest areas, pasture lands and other government lots.

Barrientos said private individual or groups can avail of seedlings if they desire to establish their own plantations. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
