Palace to cut 32 trees in Baguio
BAGUIO - The Office of the President wants to cut trees in Baguio City.
Reiner Balbuena, officer–in-charge of the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (Cenro), has forwarded to the Office of the Mayor an endorsement to cut 32 trees at the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) compound at Lualhati drive.
The 32 Calindra trees to be cut were planted under the National Greening Program in 2011 and have grown from 6-8 centimeters in diameter with a height of 2-4 meters.
"According to the staff of the Mansion, the Office of the President wants to cut/remove the Calindra trees and replace them with Benguet pine trees," read the Cenro inspection report.
Balbuena is asking Mayor Mauricio Domogan for permission to cut the trees through a clearance to be issued by the executive stemming from a request from The Mansion director Carlota Pauly.
