Cagdianao Mining, SurigaoRotary to plant 1 million trees

IT is increasingly becoming a challenge to find open areas wherein to plant trees in a highly-urbanized metropolis like Surigao City, but the Rotarians in the city led by the Rotary Club of Metro Surigao Foundation, Inc., committed to plant one million trees and their initial experience had them wanting for more.

Working with the theme “Rotary Connects the World” – Rotarians, their families and friends, travelled from Surigao City, to the adjacent Dinagat Islands to plant trees in a mined-out area in Cagdianao Mining Corporation (CMC).

“In one day alone, all 139 of us, including our children, relatives and friends, planted 2200 trees in under an hour. We felt we could do more. We felt we connected with the world indeed. It was very motivating,” said Rotary Club of Surigao City President Louie Chua.

“CMC is spearheading this tree-planting adventure to showcase the mining company’s Environment Protection Enhancement Program (EPEP) and to help build a community of tree-planters by enjoining champions of the environment like the members of the Rotary Club to come to the mine site to plant trees,” said CMC resident mine manager Arnilo Milaor.


Nickel Asia Corp (NAC) and all its subsidiaries like CMC, is mandated to initiate these collaborative efforts with other organizations and government agencies.
