CENRO donates assorted lumber to various offices
by DENR–CAR release

The Community Environment and Natural Resources Office Baguio has donated 610 pieces of assorted lumber to schools and government agencies from January to August this year.

Most of the donated lumber with a total volume of 3,525.587 board feet were those confiscated by the combined elements of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and police enforcers in separate operations within the jurisdiction of Cenro-Baguio City, headed by officer Rainier Balbuena, and were forfeited in favor of the government.

Some are forest products that were turned over by the Camp John Hay authorities from their sanitation cutting activities.

The schools in Baguio City which benefited from these activities are Fort Del Pilar Elementary School in Loakan, Rizal ES in Gibraltar, and Camp 7 ES in Kennon Road; and the Gavino-Palaoag ES in Twin Peaks and Gilbert Simon ES in Tadiangan, both in Tuba, Benguet.

Other beneficiary-schools are the Puguis ES in Puguis; Cordillera Regional High School in Wangal, and Balili ES, all in La Trinidad; and the Pacalso Memorial National High School and Ampucao NHS, both in Itogon.

Beneficiary institutions are the Baguio City Jail, Watershed and Water Resource Research Center, and Bureau of Fire Protection in Baguio City, including the CENR Baguio office in Kabayan; Barangay Tawang Hall and Department of Social Welfare and Development field office in Puguis, La Trinidad.

These institutions have used the lumber for the construction of tables; installation and repair of furniture and fixtures; fabrication of tables and book shelves; and repair of blackboards, windows, armchairs, tables, and cabinets.

Memorandum Order 162, s. 1993 provides that priorities in the donation of confiscated lumber are barangay, municipal, and provincial governments; and other government agencies that by the nature of their functions require wood materials or other forest products in order to enhance their services to the public.

In the event that two or more parties are requesting for the same confiscated forest products, first in line are the victims of disasters as certified by the DSWD; the school building program of the Department of Education, and those undertaken by the Department of National Defense/Armed Forces of the Philippines Engineering Brigade.

Next are health centers, public markets, municipal buildings, police stations, and AFP camps. It also includes the Department of Public Works and Highways whose projects cater to the benefit of the greater number, pursuant to a memorandum of agreement entered into by the DPWH and the DENR in June18, 1992.

Next in the priority list are local government units, which have jurisdiction over the place where the logs, lumber, and other forest products were cut, gathered and/or confiscated. Last are commitments to provincial, regional and national projects.

A request for donation shall be supported by the justification for the construction/establishment of the infrastructure; bill of materials and building plan; certification by the provincial auditor that there is no fund or appropriation for the purchase of the required wood materials; and a certification from the Cenro/Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office/regional office concerned that said volume or amount of forest products is available for disposition. Once complied with, the finished products will be inspected and a report will be submitted to authorities.
