Condo developer defends tree cutting within its property
by PIO release

Moldex’s cutting of 49 trees is covered by permits issued by regional office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Appearing before the city council’s session last Monday, Moldex Realty Inc. board of directors consultant Rey Diaz said the cutting of the 43 pine and six alnus trees within the company’s 3.1-hectare property at Bakakeng Central is pursuant to rules and regulations.

Moldex purchased the property in 1990 and started developing it only in 2013 when it was issued its first tree cutting permit and two earlier tree cutting permits prior to the present one which is now the subject of discussions on social media.

In lieu of the 49 trees, Moldex turned over to the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office 2,450 pine tree seedlings which were subsequently planted by the Presidential Security Group within the compound of the Presidential Mansion during a tree planting activity supervised by the DENR-Cordillera on May 24.

Under the company’s development plan, Moldex will develop 30 percent of the total land area with the construction of seven condominium buildings with provisions of a three-story underground parking structure while the remaining 70 percent will be devoted for open spaces and nature park among other amenities to improve the scenery of the place.

The tree cutting permit was supported by a barangay clearance, letter request from the property owner, mayor’s clearance with supporting inspection report from the City Environment and Parks Management Office, building permit issued by the City Buildings and Architecture Office, and the titles of the property.

The council invited Moldex and DENR officials to clarify the cutting of trees within its property to pave the way for the implementation of its development project in the area.

Based on the DENR inventory, there are 320 saplings and fully grown assorted trees in the area.

Moldex is planning to construct two additional buildings within the buildable area of its property to complete its overall development plan that will result in the cutting of additional trees but the number of trees to be cut is yet to be assessed considering the absence of plans for the structures that will be erected within the property.

Moldex plans to complete its project by next year depending on the demand for condominium units.
