The government’s National Greening Program continues to enjoy the support of the China Energy Engineering Group Col., Ltd., a Chinese firm, which provided over 1,000 pine needles planted near a village beside the Kapangan Hyropower Plant in Kapangan town, Benguet province.
Some 15 employees of the project department of the Kapangan Hydropower Plant built by Guangxi Hydroelectric Construction Bureau under China Energy participated in the planting activity on September 23, this year.
“The activity was an active response of the company to the local government’s initiative to build an eco-friendly and green homeland,” China Energy said in a recent news release.
The Philippines has intensified its reforestation efforts since it launched the “National Greening Program” in 2011. The project department of Kapangan Hydropower Plant has planted a total of 1,300 trees when it launched its first tree planting activity in surrounding area in June this year.
