Forest Ranger Joseph P. De Jesus was closely supervising the activity, making sure that PSA Bataan employees were observing the correct procedure as per NGP standards such as distance between plants and others. There were also DENR EOs to document the tree planting activity with the use of GEO Tag Technology.
The NGP is a six year forest rehabilitation program of the government which aims to grow 1.5 billion trees covering 1.5 million hectares nationwide by virtue of Executive Order No. 26. Now on its fourth year, it is PSA Bataan’s third time to join the program after participating in the same tree planting activities in September and October 2011.
