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.
