Lingayen, Pangasinan – The Cayanga village reforestation site in Bugallon town continues to flourish with a variety of tree seedlings planted by volunteers from various agencies and organizations.

“Na-appreciate na ng mga tao ang Adopt-a-Mountain project ng provincial government. That’s why they volunteer to go here and plant trees,” said Nathaniel Pulido, Senior Environment Management Specialist, during the third tree planting activity held in the site on June 21.

The reforestation program of the province dubbed “Pangasinan Onwards Greening Initiative”, a brainchild project of Governor Amado I. Espino III, saw drastic development since it was launched three years ago.

Pulido said the reforestation area is regularly visited by foresters under the Environment and Natural Resources Office of the province, who maintain the area to assure that trees planted will grow.

“Once the site will be fully reforested, then the tree library project of the province could now be worked out,” Pulido said.

In 2017, the adoption of the Cayanga reforestation site for the “Adopt-a-Mountain” project of the province was endorsed by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan via the approval of the Memorandum of Agreement signed between the provincial government and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The tree planting activity at the onset of rainy season was held in observance of the environmental awareness month.
