DA seeks to revive Marcos’ tree planting program
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel F. Piñol eyes to revive a tree planting program introduced by former President Ferdinand Marcos.
“I know I will ruffle a lot of feathers here but I will also recommend to President Duterte the reimplementation of the Tree Planting Program of former President Marcos with a new twist…” the official said in a Facebook post.
“This time it will be initiated by the local government units which would require its residents to plant a certain number of trees.”
In addition, Piñol said he will ask Duterte to request top corporations of the country, as part of their corporate social responsibility, to engage in more reforestation activities.
