400 volunteers plant trees as thanksgiving
by Press release

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR -- Mayor-elect Benjie Magalong joins student volunteers at the Pine Trees of the World Park for tree planting and cleanup activities. Trees are known to absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses, such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and other pollutants from the air and release oxygen. One large tree can supply a day’s supply of oxygen for four people. -- Glenn Pat-ogan

Over 400 volunteers and members of the “Movement for a better Baguio” participated in a thanksgiving treeplanting conducted in four different locations in the city on June 9.

The four tree planting sites are Botanical-Centennial Park, Pine Trees of the World, South Drive/Forbes Park, and Teachers’ Camp.

Planting in each site was led by team leaders: Lorda Martin from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources for the Botanical-Centennial Park, Walter Aguirre from the City Environment and Parks Management Office (Cepmo) for the Pine Trees of the World, Godfrey Matnao from the DENR for South Drive/Forbes Park, and Danny KIllip from Cepmo for Teachers’ Camp. 

The DENR and Cepmo provided around 2,000 seedlings for the activity.

Snacks and juice or water were made available through Jaja & Arn J. Corpus.

The volunteers brought their own tools.

The Baguio City Police Office provided security and medical support for the team.

Planting places were pre-marked for volunteers to dig and plant,” said activity organizer Monin Navarro.

The activity was conceived as a project by supporters of mayor-elect Benjie Magalong in gratitude for his being voted into office by a majority of Baguio residents.

Magalong joined the volunteers in the tree planting/thanksgiving activity.
