District Engineer Virgilio Eduarte of the Samar First District Engineering Office (SFDEO) located at Brgy. San Policarpo, Calbayog City spearheads the tree planting activity on May 3, 2014. This activity is in line with the greening plan of the District Office.
There are more or less thirty (30) fruit bearing trees of different varieties were planted within the vicinity of the District Office like coconut trees, mango trees, caimito trees, avocado trees and more. SFDEO personnel are very hopeful that all those trees will live and will bear fruits after a year or two.
The tree planting activity is undertaken not only for the beautification of the office but also in adherence with the environmental campaign of various government agencies against global warming by providing a clean and green environment. This drive is one which the present administration strongly gives emphasis to fight against the disasters, calamities, and destructions that our country had experienced for the past decade including the wrath of super typhoon Yolanda which ravaged Tacloban City and other towns in Samar.
