Forest Protection is Everybodys' Concern-BENRO
by: Aurell P. Arais
The Bukidnon Environment and Natural Resources Office (BENRO) have appealed to the public to help them protect the environment.
The appeal was made by Forester Arturo Melendez of BENRO as reaction to the recent forest fire within 5000 hectares Bukidnon Tree Park here in Malaybalay City.
The Bukidnon Tree Park was planted with pine tree the main reason why Malaybalay has a very nice and cold climate.
According to Melendez, trees are very important for animal being since it gives off oxygen for us to breath.
“Trees are precious gift from GOD, so we must refrain to destroy it instead protect it” he concluded.
