DENR leads planting of trees in public lands
by PIO release

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Cordillera will pursue the planting of assorted tree species in public lands, not only in the city, but also in other parts of the region as part of the government’s effort to sustain the preservation and protection of the environment.

DENR-Cordillera Executive Director Ralph Pablo told city councilors that the agency is spearheading the planting of trees in forest reservations, military reservations, government-owned lands, parks and public places, if applicants for the issuance of tree cutting permits decide to turnover to the office the trees as replacement of those applied to be cut.

He added that if the applicants decide to plant the trees themselves and they do not have any planting area, the agency will identify the site for them.

He said the replacement trees are planted in public lands to allow the agency to monitor their growth and ensure their survival so these could serve their purpose.

Applicants of tree cutting permits are required to plant 50 trees for every tree if the same is planted and 100 trees for every natural grown tree that will be cut.

The city council invited DENR officials to shed light on the cutting of trees in private properties in the different parts of the city.

In the case of the 2,450 tree seedlings that were turned over by the management of Moldex Realty, Inc. as replacement of the 49 trees that were cut in their property along Marcos Highway, Pablo said the number of trees and additional seedlings from the agency’s nursery were planted by personnel of the Presidential Security Group within the premises of The Mansion on May 24.

He said that applicants for tree cutting permits can turnover to the agency the replacement trees, which will be temporarily taken care of by the agency’s personnel until these shall have been planted.

The DENR central office issues tree cutting permits for more than 50 trees while the regional office is empowered to issue permits if the number of trees to be cut is less than 50. Local chief executives are also authorized to issue tree cutting permits for dead trees or those that pose danger to life and property.

Prior to the issuance of the tree cutting permits by the DENR-Cordillera, applicants have to secure barangay and mayor’s clearances.
