The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Central Luzon Regional Director Karl Caesar Rimando has emphasized the importance of the participation of local chief executives (LCEs) in protecting the region’s forest cover.

“We should know that our environment is our main debt to our future,” he said during a tree planting activity at the New Clark City River Park.

“I hope that this activity will not start and stop today, and that we will continue to help each other in planting for a green Philippines,” Rimando said.

He also urged LCEs to strengthen the initiatives on taking care of the environment in their respective localities.

Environment officials led the planting of 300 saplings and seedlings of native trees, particularly narra and banaba, at the park.

The event was part of the “Buhayin ang Pangangalaga sa Kalikasan” nationwide simultaneous tree planting activity of the DILG and other agencies.
