Some 30 bamboo seedlings that were planted were provided by the local government unit (LGU) of Tagudin, while the Department of Agriculture (DA) gave 100 seedlings of assorted fruit bearing trees.
The Tagudin’s LGU employees, CENRO staff, and Municipal Police Station personnel joined the activity.

They were also joined by the Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur represented by Provincial Board Member Christopher Baterina, DA provincial office staff, DILG Ilocos Sur staff led by Provincial Director Randy Dela Rosa, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) in Ilocos Sur, Department of Labor and Employment-Regional Office, LGU of Santa Lucia, Philippine Information Agency-Ilocos Sur Information Center, DENR Regional Office, CENRO Bantay, and the barangay officials of Bio.
Chairperson of Barangay Bio Floriano Caburnay said he is grateful that they are the beneficiary of the said event that will further improve their mini forest—a project they have been working on.
“Sa awa ng Diyos, simula noong nagkaroon ng mga tanim dito dumami talaga at malaki ang naging improvement dito sa lugar namin. Pagtutulungan po namin ng mga kasama ko sa barangay at ng mga opisyal na pigilang pumunta rito iyong mga hayop, para mapangalagaan namin iyong mga naitanim ngayon,” said Caburnay.
He further said, “Mahalaga po itong tree planting dahil talaga pong makakatulong ito para maiwasan ang soil erosion. Papaalalahanan ko rin iyong mga nakatira rito sa barangay na pangalagaan itong mga tanim.”
Meanwhile PENRO Rosemarie B. Jornacion said, “This activity shows that it is not only DENR who cares for the environment, this is a collaboration of everyone here today, so we thank all of you for joining us.”
She also asked the residents to check on the planted tree seedlings and make sure that they are well taken care of so that their efforts will be worthwhile once the trees grow and multiply. (JCR/AMB/ATV, PIA Ilocos Sur)
