by Susan C. Aro / PIO

Communities of Atok and Kabayan in Benguet exerted effort to be united to realize the construction of farm-to-market roads.

Julius Kollin, head of the Environment and Natural Resources Office said constituents joined efforts in planting trees along the widened portions of two farm-to-market roads in the two municipalities.

One of the conditions for the widening of the Jose Mencio and Km. 49-Ambakian farm-to-market roads is the replacement of trees that were allowed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to be cut by the provincial government.

The road projects are under the Philippine Rural Development Project of the Department of Agriculture. 

Kollin said the planting of trees is a concerted effort of the provincial government, barangay officials, schools, and affected individual lot owners.

A total of 2,150 Arabica coffee seedlings and 100 Caliandra seedlings procured by the provincial government were planted along the roadsides in June and July.

Apart from maintaining ecological balance in the area, the trees will also benefit the people, Kollin said.

Together with the provincial government, barangays Topdac and Poblacion in Atok, Atok National High School, Cating Elementary School, and private individuals who were affected by the projects participated in the tree planting activities.

The provincial government will also establish a nursery in the area to be maintained by barangay tanods in preparation for the next planting season.

Kollin said the survival rate of the planted trees will be monitored.
