It is the lo­cal gov­ern­ment’s way of urg­ing new­ly­weds to be more re­spon­si­ble for the en­vi­ron­ment and make tree plant­ing more sym­bolic.

“I would tell them that plant­ing a tree is like tak­ing care of a re­la­tion­ship. You must be re­spon­si­ble and be pre­pared to take care of the tree reg­u­larly. It grows as their re­la­tion­ship grows deeper,” Tor­res said.

Tor­res said that he gives away tree saplings like mango, langka and san­tol so that these could be more use­ful to the fam­ily in the fu­ture. At least close to 100 cou­ples have been given fruit trees by the mayor since he started his term.

Aside from this, tree plant­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in sev­eral barangays were also con­ducted in the past months in a bid to in­tro­duce trees in ar­eas that ex­pe­ri­ence mas­sive flood­ing ev­ery year.
