Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) of Siocon headed by its OIC, CENRO Rey A. Jalandoni conducted a bamboo planting activity at Barangay S. Cabral, Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte on June 25, 2021 in celebration of Philippine Arbor Day and 158th Anniversary of Philippine Forestry Service.
The activity was attended by 30 personnel of CENRO-Siocon including its 13 Registered Foresters and Barangay Officials of S. Cabral. They planted approximately 200 bamboo culms.
Bamboo is considered an ideal substitute for the supply of timber resources because of its many uses and marketability as wood, and it is a suitable reforestation species that could provide both livelihood and environmental protection in upland communities and watershed areas.
