Gov't nets P40.8M in forest protection drive in Caraga region

Butuan City (March 29) -- The no non-sense drive on forest protection campaign in the Caraga region had netted at least P40.8 million since last year up to the present.

The huge amount was based on the confiscated 15,275.19 cubic meters or 249,420.50 board feet of illegally-cut round logs and lumbers from various areas in Northeastern Mindanao.

Aside from these confiscated forest products, at least P3.85 million worth of conveyances also added to the accomplishments of various provincial and community environment and natural resources offices of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) anti-illegal logging task force.

These confiscated forest products and conveyances were already turned over to the Natural Resources and Development Corporation (NRDC), marketing arm of the DENR for public bidding.

Some of these confiscated forest products were already bidded.

DENR Caraga Regional Executive Director (RED) Edilberto S. Buiser attributed these achievements to the ongoing all-out forest protection drive not only to DENR's anti-illegal logging task force but also to local government unit officials, police and military, especially the Caraga Conference Peace and Development (CCPD) led by its founding chair Bishop Juan de Dios Pueblos of the Diocese of Butuan.

Bulk of this came from the Agusan del Sur Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) led by PENR Officer Sixto C. Badua.

The PENR officer received several certificates of commendation and appreciations for these accomplishments on environment preservation and forest protection.

Meanwhile, Bunawan CENR officer Ulpiano Dasilao and Forestry Supervisor Victor Sabornido reported on Monday the latest apprehension of 720 pieces of logs and 1,949 pieces of sawn-lumber or 4,422 board feet at the southern part of the province of Agusan del Sur.

In their flash report, Dasilao and Sabornido said the forest products with conveyances ? five 10-wheeler trucks, two Saddam trucks, three 10-wheeler Wing Van and one six-wheeler Fuzo forward, are now under administrative proceedings at Bunawan CENRO office in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur.

The two field forest officials requested RED Buiser and PENR officer Badua for lawyers to help them prosecute the owners of the seized forest products in local court. (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
