Rules being set for planned Pine Tree fest
by PIO release

The guidelines for the celebration of the Baguio City Pine Tree Festival pursuant to the provisions of the city’s Environment Code are being finalized.

The city council approved on first reading the proposed ordinance, authored by Councilor Elaine D. Sembrano, that seeks to institutionalize the Pine Tree Festival to make the residents appreciate the relevance of pine trees to the environment and heritage of the city and enhance their awareness on environment-related laws, issuances, and ordinances.

The ordinance provides that the Baguio City Pine Tree festival shall be a week-long celebration on the first week of September each year as part of the activities for the city’s Charter Month commemoration.

Under the proposed measure, the executive committee of the festival shall be authorized to appoint the chairpersons and members of the different committees on public information and education, pine tree planning, technical and evaluation, arts and crafts and cultural, program and awards, and finance.

Representatives of the local government shall be composed of 40 percent of the committee membership while representatives of the national agencies and the private sector are allotted 30 percent each.

The proposed ordinance allocates P5 million under the special purpose appropriations of the city budget for the activity.

It also assigns the City Environment and Parks Management Officer as the chairperson of the Pine Tree festival committee, upon approval of the measure or upon assumption of the new mayor, shall undertake the organization of the committee and the selection of the members of the various committees for the issuance of the necessary administrative order by the executive.

The Environment Code mandated the celebration of a Pine Tree Festival and declared the months of June, July, August, and September each year as tree planting months.
