• DENR orders Cebu road widening project stopped


    The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has issued a cease and desist order to the con-tractor of a road widening project for cutting at least 54 Gmelina, Mahogany and Ficus trees in Sitio Camp 2, Barangay Jaclupan without a tree cutting permit. The order was signed by Community Environment and Natural Re-sources Officer Cebu City Raul Pasoc last July 9 and addressed to QM Builders Proprietor/Manager Allan Quirante. DENR 7 Regional Director Dr. Isabelo R. Montejo said the project is an environmentally critical project as it sits within a protected area that requires the approval of the Protected Area Management Board.
