Bishop supports freeze on cutting of pine trees

The recent cutting of pine trees to pave the way for the construction of a high-rise structure at Outlook Drive barangay has once again stirred up a controversy and awakened calls for the declaration of a moratorium on tree cutting in Baguio City.

URBAN SPRAWL -- The remaining green patches in Baguio are slowly being flattened to pave the way for commercial and residential structures through the years, with a National Economic Development Authority study citing that the current tree population in the city is insufficient for the more than 350,000 residents and a daytime population of 700,000 during peak season. Recent inventory conducted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Cordillera revealed only 2.5 million trees remain standing in the City of Pines. -- Harley Palangchao
