CENRO Boracay, reminds the public of tree planting to avoid climate change

Written by Mackie Pajarillo

“For now, planting trees is the solution seen to avoid climate change”.

This is what CENRO BOracay Officer Norman Dy Lebelo said in relation to the worries of people in the Island.

This is according to the observations of some that many trees have been uprooted following typhoon Yolanda.

Lebelo however assured that the government through their agency is conducting activities and or programs to answer this dilemma that may cause climate change.

The CENRO officer calls upon the masses to help in planting trees on the Island or to join related activities organized by the department or other agencies.

He added that their office is open to those who wish to ask for seedlings and this are not for sale.

Meanwhile, Lebelo explained that planting trees also depends on the area or the soil; he said a fast growing seedling if plant on an unsuitable place will cause to wither eventually.

In line with this, the CENRO includes this matter in their assessment to ensure the successful growth of the tree.
