Ifugao cops plant trees

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lamut, Ifugao (20 November) -- The Ifugao Police joined recently the fun run and tree planting activity sponsored by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here.

Led by Police Provincial Director PSSupt. Laurence Mombael, the police planted about 800 assorted seedlings including G-Melina and beetle nut at Sitio Malabago, Mabatobato.

Planting trees will contribute to the preservation of nature and help ease the extreme heat experience in this place especially during hot seasons due to its denuded forests which are converted to residential/business areas, PO2 Juliet Nalidong of the PPO said. "These activities are very helpful in preventing disasters that calamities may bring," she added.

On the other hand, cops at Hingyon town planted 2,300 assorted tree seedlings - 1,070 G-Melina, 600 narra, 300 mahogany and 200 fruit trees in Barangays Mompolia, Namulditan, O-ong, Pitawan and Bitu.

Chief of Police PI Arthur Bentican y said that this is one way of preventing erosions as Hingyon is landslide prone area.

"I want to leave a legacy in the province by helping in the preservation of the environment and prevent erosions brought about by denuded forests," Bentican said.

He encouraged those who have muyung (forests) to ask assistance in planting trees in their muyung for free. "We still have seedlings waiting to be planted and will continue to plant as long as there are trees and vacant lands to be planted. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
