‘Kawayan Tinik’ species planted in NGP area in Guimaras

ILOILO CITY (PIA) - - A total of 70 culms of Kawayan Tinik species was planted within the 23 hectares National Greening Program (NGP) bamboo plantation area in the island province of Guimaras during the recent Nationwide Simultaneous Bamboo and Tree Planting Activity.

In his message, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) 6 Regional Executive Director Livino B. Duran said that though bamboo is called as the poor man's lumber, it is considered as the best commodity that has a great impact in the lives of the people in the community.

“This bamboo planting activity, that is now well-known nationwide, is one of the possible answers to our prayer of minimizing the effects of climate change. Bamboo is acknowledged by the United Nations and the general public as the best carbon sequestration material,” added Duran.

DENR 6 was among the agencies that joined the Nationwide Simultaneous Bamboo and Tree Planting Activity spearheaded by the Department of Trade and Industry 6 held at Sitio Lusod, Brgy. Taminla, Buenavista, Guimaras on September 19, 2022.  

Aside from Duran, Guimaras PENR Officer Edgardo M. Rostata and DTI Guimaras representative Dorita Chavez led the activity with the theme "Industriyang Kawayan Para sa Paglago ng Ekonomiya at Kalikasan.”

Officers and members of Taminla Upland Farmers Association, Incorporated led by their President Norberto Pauchano and the community of Brgy. Taminla and their village chief, Jerome Crudo also participated in the bamboo planting. (JBG/denr6/laf/PIA6-Iloilo)
