TACLOBAN CITY – Tacloban took a significant step in fortifying its natural resources by planting a variety of native and fruit trees at the Tacloban Crops Resources Hub (TACReH) and Bee Farm. This tree planting and nurturing activity, led by the Tacloban City Agriculturist Office and Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) Tacloban Council, saw participation from around 300 scouts and students.

Among the participants were students from Saint Therese Educational Foundation, Inc. (STEFTI), Leyte National High School (LNHS), and Eastern Visayas State University (EVSU). Together, they planted 150 molave trees, 50 delta trees, 53 rambutan trees, 40 pineapple suckers, and 6 dalandan trees.

Beyond the immediate benefits of mitigating the adverse effects of global warming, this tree planting and nurturing initiative aligns with the observance of Environmental Awareness Month. It significantly contributes to the enhancement of the local biodiversity, particularly within the vicinity of the Bee Demo Farm in the city.

As these trees mature and grow, they will provide an invaluable contribution to the recently completed North Cemetery. The inauguration of this cemetery, located adjacent to the demo farm, is scheduled for November 8, 2023, marking the 10th anniversary of Super Typhoon Yolanda. 

This event reflects Tacloban's ongoing commitment to environmental conservation and the commemoration of its history. —iTacloban (Source: CIO)
