NEW LAW ALLOWS CUTTING OF INFESTED COCONUT TREES

0

LEGAZPI CITY: Coconut trees are now allowed to be cut on some conditions under the newly amended Republic Act 10593, known as an Act providing for the regulation of the cutting of coconut trees. The amended law also provides police powers to the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) to investigate, apprehend and arrest possessor of coconut lumber without necessary permit—including search and seize of a moving vehicle with illegally cut, gathered, collected or removed coconut lumber. In the Province of Albay, ban on cutting of coconut trees is still in effect, according to Board Member Ramon Alsua, committee on agriculture chairman.
