by Juliet B. Saley

Bauko, Mt. Province (15 May) -- Strengthening efforts to help save Mother Earth, members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan approved Municipal Ordinance No. 011-C called the Bauko Communal Forests Protection Ordinance.

The ordinance prohibits any individual, juridical entity, corporation, organized body whether formal or informal, to enter into, encroached upon any portion of all identified communal forests of the municipality by means of declaring of taxation purposes, cultivating, introducing any sort of improvement.

There are four identified communal forests declared in 1935 within the municipality. These are the communal forests in barangays Otucan, Tapapan, Poblacion and Monamon which must be protected from destruction to support life with the continuous increase of human population.

The ordinance also stated that the re-survey of the four communal forests shall identify the existing boundary points and tax declaration or any legal document covering such affected areas shall be caused to be cancelled. All existing forest growths shall belong to the public domain.

Any violation of the prohibitions stated in this ordinance shall be fined in the amount of P2,000.00 and cause the cancellation of tax declaration or land title. Fines shall accrue to the trust fund for forest guards. (PIA Mt. Prov) [top]
