Angeles City Gov’t to Plant More Trees at Sapangbato

Angeles City Gov’t to Conduct Tree Planting Activities Starting Sept. 1

Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. has taken a step towards preserving the Sapangbato watershed by marking 72,835 mixed trees under his leadership. His reforestation program aims to ensure a sustainable water supply for future generations.

The move comes after a meeting between the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) and the Indigenous Peoples Mandatory Representation (IPMR). Both parties planned on mounting tree-planting activities at the Angeles City Watershed.

“We should not stop nurturing our watershed until it is fully restored and self-sustainable for the benefit of the future generation,” Mayor Lazatin said in a Manila Standard report.

The tree-planting activity, which will be conducted by city hall employees, will commence on Sept. 1. Each department will have scheduled activities every Friday until Dec. 1.
