Last Saturday, more than 750 volunteers from 35 companies trekked to sitio Cantipla in barangay Tabunan to plant trees.

The event dubbed Cebu Hillyland Reforestation Caravan of the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP)  seeks to mobilize widespread support in regaining the forest landscape of Cebu.

The site of the tree planting event last Saturday is part of the 29,062-hectare Central Cebu Protected Landscape.

Only native or endemic tree species were planted in order to restore the biodiversity in Tabunan.

Greening Cebu’s protected landscape is vital in preserving biodiversity, creating carbon sink and recharging aquifiers.
