Tree Planting Activity in "Kaingin" Site at San Marcelino, Zambales

Tree Planting Activity in "Kaingin" Site at San Marcelino, Zambales

On the last day of the service activity of Eugenio Lopez Jr. Center for Media Arts-SHS Rover Scouts, there was a tree planting activity joined by the faculty, boy scouts, girl scouts and parents of Sta. Fe O-It Elementary School. The tree planting area  was chosen because it was a denuded area, as a result of ocassional "kaingin" or the illegal slash-burn method which abruptly kills any plants and trees in the area for the preparation for farming crops.

Agoho (Casuarina equisetefolia) where used to reforest the area, becauase it is a native and indigenous plant in Zambales. Seedlings were acquired through the coordination with the City Environmental and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) -Olongapo.
