KIANGAN, Ifugao – A team from the Lamut Community Environment and Natural Resources Office escorted by military and personnel from the Kiangan Municipal Police Station raided a forest area in Sitio Indalmogan, Julongan in this town last April 24 and May 4, leading to the confiscation of various sizes of illegally cut lumber.

Led by CENR Officer Dean Baywong Jr. and Cenro Chief Enforcement Officer Joseph Buccahan, the team swooped down on the forested area which is more than one kilometer below the national road going to Tinoc, where a camp of the illegal loggers was located.

The team discovered some illegally cut lumber consisting of Tanguile, Red Lauan, White Lauan, and Philippine Oak, known locally as “palayon.”

The team initially hauled 97 pieces of the assorted sizes of lumber with a volume of 1,087.28 board feet valued at about P35,000  last April 24 and another 101 pieces with a volume of 897.35 bd. ft.,  valued at about P32,000 on May 4. 

The operation was a result of more than one month of surveillance after receiving text messages from concerned citizens about the rampant illegal logging in the area.

The DENR recommended an intensified monitoring of the forest zone and watershed area of Julongan, the conduct of information drive with the concerned municipal and barangay local government units, and to request the LGUs of Kiangan and Hungduan to cancel all tax declarations covering the Indalmogan Forest and watershed areas.
