Total log ban imposed in Lanao Norte
TUBOD, Lanao del Norte (20 October) -- Environment Secretary Angelo Reyes has ordered a total logging ban in the province amid reports that illegal loggers have started to target government reforestation projects.
Under Administrative Order No. 2006-13, Reyes said the log ban covers natural-growth and planted trees.
Governor Imelda Dimaporo urged authorities to strictly implement the ban, saying the remaining watershed of the province should be protected at all cost. (PIA) [top]
