A Successful Tree Planting Activity in Puguis, La Trinidad

I've been to several tree planting activities in the past but this one is definitely one of the most memorable. First of all, there was an actual tree expert in the scene (Michael Bengwayan) who told us what to do and what not to do. This is unlike other tree planting activities I went to where everyone is pretty much left to do whatever he or she pleases which in the end leads to wasted time, efforts and of course wasted seedlings. In the planting activity I went to today, we were oriented and shown the right ways on how to handle and plant the seedlings.

The Longlong Communal Forest, a companion on the activity told me, is the venue of several tree planting activities every year. The problem is once the seedlings were planted there, they are just left there without follow-ups from those who planted them. So they end up either dying or stunted in their growth. The One Nature, One Community hopes to not follow the same flaw. The seedlings we planted today will be nurtured and taken care of. We hope.

And congratulations to everyone involved. To a greener La Trinidad. Cheers.
