New PENRO vows
more tree planting


The new Negros Occidental Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer, Valentin Talavero, yesterday pledged to step up the planting of trees of indigenous species in the province.

Talevero took over from PENRO Jesse Vego who will be assigned to Guimaras.

In line with the Green Philippines campaign of the Aquino administration, Talavero said he will push for the planting of more trees in Negros Occidental to help in the battle against global warming.

Negros Occidental is a big province comprising 40 percent of the land area of Region 6, he pointed out.

“We are in the process of finalizing the targeted areas for the planting of specific appropriate indigenous species of trees,” he added.

“We will work hard at the protection and conservation of our environment in a holistic way,” he said.

And this will involve the tapping of all sectors of the community to help in the campaign, he stressed.*CPG
