ABUCAY, Bataan – One thousand six hundred trees were planted by scholars, members of various non-government organizations and municipal councilors and employees recently at the municipal recovery facility (MRF) nursery in Sitio Macao, Barangay Capitangan.
Engr. Ernesto Vergara, municipal administrator, said the tree species were molave, narra, eucalyptus, palcapa, mahogany, mangiom, champaca, and caballero.
Vergara said the tree planting activity was in line with Bataan Gov. Abet Garcia’s 1M41B challenge which is being done provincewide. He said the project aims to fill the MRF nursery with trees to neutralize the possible pollutants and toxic atmosphere that may arise within the vicinity of the facility.
He said taking care of the environment is a continuing project of the municipal government of Abucay more particularly on the solid waste management program as envisioned by Mayor Liberato P. Santiago, Jr.
