More trees expected along SLEX


THE Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has provided 3,608 seedlings of Palawan cherry, alibangbang, bilitbitan, banaba, golden shower and narra to be planted along the roadsides of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) as part of a private sector-led greening initiative. The planting of seedlings from Kimberly Overpass to Saimsim Road Overpass was spearheaded by the Rotary Club International, in partnership with the Career Executive Service Board and the South Luzon Tollways Corp. DENR Secretary Ramon Paje said the tree-planting activity is a “valuable contribution” to the National Greening Program, the Aquino administration’s flagship reforestation program that seeks to cover 1.5 million hectares with trees by 2016.
