BATANGAS CITY - On July 16, approximately 70 endemic trees were planted in vacant lots at the Batangas City Grand Terminal as part of the Nature Festival.

These are tuog, narra, molave ​​and alibangbang.

One of the activities planned for the 52nd anniversary of the city's founding is tree planting.

The planting was led by the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (City ENRO) and several officials from Batangas Ventures Properties and Management Corporation, the grand terminal's operator.

According to Oliver Gonzales, chief of City ENRO, tree planting is done on an annual basis as part of the city government's commitment to its greening program.

“Ilan sa mga puno na itinanim ay galing sa mga replacement o pamalit sa mga punong pinutol noon habang ang iba naman ay bigay ng Malampaya Foundation,” Gonzales said.

The management of Batangas Ventures is ecstatic to have been chosen as the city government's partner in this project.

According to Christy Villamor, Finance and Administration Manager of the said company, they will do everything they can to protect the trees planted so that it is not unhappy.

“Malaking tulong ang mga puno sa amin bilang absorbing agent dahil marami ditong sasakyan na nagdudulot ng polusyon kaya naman lubos ang aming pasasalamat sa city government,” Villamor said.

He also added that their Operations and Safety Department is assigned to take care and guard the trees.
