DENR undersecretary Demetrio Ingancio, was one one of the fervent supporters of the activity that made his way all the way up to the planting area to celebrate the 10,000 tree planted by PTT.

PTT’s tree planting project is a welcome move for everyone, especially with the rate our forests are disappearing. On the way up to the area for event, here are some of the wonderful sights we saw.

Each tree is planted by PTT for every customer that gasses up with a total of 1,000 php. Each 200php load will get you 1 sticker. For every tree plated, a number is given and tagged. The progress an the growth of the tree can be monitored via an android application.

PTT’s celebration of their 10,000 trees planting activity was a success. It is nice to know that there are companies out their that do there share in helping restore our planet earth. As mentioned by 1 of the guest speakers, for every 1 car on the road, we need at least 10 trees. So Keep up the good work!!!
