City, volunteers to intensify reforestation of watersheds
by PIO release

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan ordered concerned city government offices and prospective volunteers to help in the intensified efforts to reforest the city’s watersheds.

Domogan said the local government will be using bulk of the 500,000 assorted tree seedlings that will be given by SM to increase the forest covers of the boundary of the 139-hectare property at Sto. Tomas school area with Tuba, Benguet, and the Busol Watershed, particularly with its boundary with La Trinidad.

Based on the data from the Environment department, only 20 percent of the city’s over 5,000 hectares land area remains forested and the pace of deforestation is rapidly increasing compared with the pace of refo-restation.

“We also welcome the efforts of concerned residents and groups to plant Arabica coffee seedlings in various portions of our watersheds because it will help in improving the forest cover of our existing sources of water. We want to continue improving the greenery of our forests to increase the water holding capacity of our reservations,” Domogan said.

Aside from providing the local government with the tree seedlings for the watersheds as its compensatory requirement for the 82 trees cut at Luneta Hill, SM will be hiring experts who will take care of the trees that will be planted for a three-year period.

Domogan said volunteer individuals and groups are welcome to participate in the numerous tree planting that will be scheduled during the rainy season to make sure that the seedlings to be planted will survive and contribute to efforts to preserve and protect the environment.

He urged barangay officials to convince their constituents to plant trees in available spaces within their properties.

He said increasing the forest cover within the boundaries of the city and its neighboring towns in Benguet will contribute in providing the needed buffer zones that will help deter forest fires during the dry season.

He said individuals and groups participating in tree planting must also help in monitoring the growth of the planted trees.
