LT mayor orders village chiefs to inventory trees in brgys
by Ofelia C. Empian

The municipality of La Trinidad, Benguet is conducting inventory of trees that pose danger to lives and properties including those that may cause accidents during typhoons.

Mayor Romeo Salda, in a memorandum, has directed all punong barangays to conduct inventory of all trees that are dead, leaning, or falling “which may cause imminent danger to life and property.”

Salda said the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (Penro), during its meeting with the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist Office and municipal environment and natural resources officers, gave the instruction for the conduct of tree inventory.

He directed the punong barangays to forward the list of possible trees to be cut for the validation of the Menro and Penro and the “possible issuance of an emergency cutting permit.”

Liga ng mga Barangay President and Councilor Charles Canuto said all punong barangays received on July 30 the mayor’s directive and have conducted inventory of the hazardous trees near residential houses.

He said that Barangay Cruz has still trees near residential houses, which pose danger to the community considering the barangay’s sloppy and mountainous terrain.

Canuto added they would have to get an emergency cutting permit from the mayor’s office through the Menro prior to cutting trees. 

Menro Chief Arthur Pedro said the inventory is ongoing in the 16 barangays of La Trinidad in compliance with the order of the mayor’s office.

The DENR said infected trees, including those causing danger to persons and properties can be issued a tree-cutting permit and exempted from the nationwide moratorium on tree cutting.

Executive Order 23, or the declaration on the moratorium on cutting and harvesting of timber in the natural and residual forests, bans the issuance of tree cutting permit to applicants.
