For the last 6 years
TACLOBAN CITY- More than 1,000 volunteers joined the recently-held Oplan Broadcastreeing project held at Barangay 100, a northern village of this city.
DILG-8 Regional Director Marivel Sacendoncillo told reporters in an interview that the tree planting activity led by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) together with the Department of Interior and Local Government(DILG)
and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), is getting stronger, now on its sixth year of implementation.
“The tree planting activity was a success, however, let us urge everyone to likewise care for tree growing aside from tree planting,” Sacendoncillo said.
Arturo Salazar, DENR assistant regional director for management services, said that the activity was able to plant 1,890 fruit trees in a 3.5 hectare hilly area identified by DENR as planting site under the expanded National Greening Program (eNGP).
Records from the DENR, DILG, and KBP show that since 2011, Oplan Broadcastreeing has already planted at least 33,000 trees throughout the region.
