Ifugao's muyung counters effects of global warming

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lagawe, Ifugao (3 October) -- The muyung (forest) system of the people here can counter the effects of global warming.

Forester Jerry Camat, of the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) here that it is an indigenous practice of every Ifugao to plant more than one tree for every tree cut by them. It is already inherent in them to plant as many trees whenever they cut a tree that is why they are able to maintain their forest.

Known for its woodcarving industry, the province counts on its muyung system in protecting the environment. Woodcarvers are volunteering to plant trees in barren areas in Lamut and other sites in the province. We are grateful that our woodcarvers are cooperating with us when it comes to the preservation of the forests here, Camat said. Seedlings were distributed to families for them to plant in their muyongs.

Camat, meanwhile, cautioned the people living in sloppy areas to move in safer grounds as typhoon Pepeng threatens northern Luzon. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
